Social Action Project

CF Volunteers communicated with local residents around a footpath which had become dilapidated and was damaged. This footpath was causing a potential risk to members of the public and people living in the locality. The tarmac had become loose and stones were spread all over the damaged footpath. After liaising with local community members in the area CF helped create social action by contacting local council teams in charge of highways and roads. Several pictures and emails were sent to council staff and after a number of weeks the footpath was repaired. This was important for local community members and it helped create a solution for a localised issue. This type of social action is positive and it helps community members tackle local issues and address problems through social action and community engagement. Helping facilitate this is a key part of CF’s focus as a grassroots voluntary organisation.
