How we engage a new community

Tuesday 25th March 2014

At Oakham Heights we used our Community Mobiliser to help people moving onto the development to meet and get to know their neighbours.

We used a range of communication methods, social media and informal newsletters suitable for a wide age range, to engage with people and to organise both face-to-face and non face-to-face activities.

As the number of homeowners increases on a development we can help people understand and develop ideas around what it is they want to do with their community.

Typical events that we have undertaken include:

  • Coffee Mornings
  • Mum and toddler get togethers
  • Neighbourhood help for gardening
  • Neighbourhood watch
  • Providing a directory supporting residents businesses
  • Quiz nights
  • Chinese and Indian nights
  • Walking and running groups

Every new development is a blank canvas with endless possibilities for social interaction to help build a thriving community where people love living.
