There are many ways to help shape where you live, all you need to do is get involved.
Get to know your neighbours, introduce yourself and try to build positive relationships – you never know when you might need their help. These templates may help ease introductions between students and their neighbours.
Support other students to get involved in the community, as a paid role. Find out more… UWE Community Reps email: firstname.lastname@example.org University of Bristol Community Ambassadors email: email@example.com

Attend your local Neighbourhood Partnership Forum
Bristol has 14 Neighbourhood Partnerships, which aim to bring public sector decision making to a local level where local residents can have an influence on neighbourhood improvements. The partnerships meet regularly, bringing together local councillors, neighbourhood police teams, community groups and local residents to shape services such as:
- Street cleaning
- Park maintenance
- Local recycling schemes
- Minor traffic schemes
- Highway maintenance
- Community safety
