Social Action is about us all working together, to take responsibility and to help create a society that we do not only want to live in, but that we are proud to live in. It’s about setting an example – sitting around doing nothing won’t get anyone anywhere, only you can make the change and make something happen. Actions speak louder than words.
Do you have somewhere in your community, such as a youth centre, community hall, public garden or a local charity that really needs a spot of help? Do you need help giving the Big Society a much needed boost in your area?
Then send us an email saying who you are, where the help is needed, your Branch/Area/Region, and finally, in no more than 400 words, why the help is needed.
We could be here to help you and your community. Send us your details by 20th April and a National CF Social Action project could be coming to your area.
Please email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hearing from you all!
“Far too many communities in the UK have been robbed of their independence and communal strength through the culture of dependency that grew up under Labour’s Big Government and Social Action is one of the ways you can start to work for and with your local communities to change that.
Whether by volunteering your time or expertise (formally or informally), fundraising for or with local charities, serving as a governor or a special constable or setting up your own community group or charity there are a huge range of ways that you can play your part in strengthening your local community and giving the Big Society a boost in your area.” ~Nicola Blackwood MP – Vice Chairman for Social Action~
“Social Action is central in our efforts to strengthen the Big Society, based on the belief that by acting together rather than depending solely on the State, we can deliver real and lasting change.
Social Action is now integral to our work as Conservatives in our local areas. It’s a new kind of politics, engaging both grassroots members and then wider population – some of whom may never have engaged in politics of any kind- in the value of stepping up and improving our communities.
All across the country, Conservatives have taken up the Social Action challenge and are providing sustained local leadership on what we can do with and for our local communities. As well as practical projects we are also running parents’ groups, organising beat meetings with the police, and supporting people who are out of work through jobs’ clubs.
Social Action demonstrates visibly and unarguably that locally-driven positive change is possible if people are willing to roll up their sleeves and get involved.”
~ David Cameron – Prime Minister ~
