Third report by Baroness Newlove, the government's Champion for Active, Safer Communities



Baroness Newlove was appointed as the government’s Champion for Active, Safer Communities in October 2010. Since then she has worked with communities across the country to find out what grassroots activists want and need.

This is her third report. It is a manual for communities that brings together new ideas that have been proven to work and case studies from different areas. It highlights resources that can provide support to communities that want to do more.
