“All neighbourhoods are a great place to live” is one of Telford & Wrekin Council’s corporate priority. To drive delivery of this, the Council has invested £45m in a “Pride in our Communities” programme which has delivered significant improvement in the physical infrastructure, developed community assets and supported our neighbourhood high streets.

Whilst the Council has made this investment, as a Co-operative Council we know delivering this priority can only be achieved in partnership with our communities. We want to support community groups and individuals to be active in their neighbourhoods to build strong communities. To support this commitment, we have developed a series of volunteer programmes.

Telford Street Champions are an amazing team of volunteers who play an active role in their local community to keep it clean, safe and tidy. The Street Champion scheme was set up several years ago to enable local people to play an active role in their local communities and to help us ensure their local areas remain clean and safe places to live. It is a scheme for local people that take pride in their local communities.
