How Solihull's Environment Champions work with the council to transform their neighbourhoods


Solihull’s Environment Champions was launched  Neighbourhood Services of Solihull Council to tackle the community’s problem with littering, vandalism and other environmental crimes.

The projects objectives were to:

  1. Instigate greater community involvement and ownership over issues affecting the quality of life of neighbourhoods.
  2. To reduce environmental crime that can spill-over to more serious crime and anti-social behaviour. By changing normative behaviour and signals the project sought to end a cycle that eroded social capital and cohesion.
  3. Improve the partnership between public, private and voluntary groups within Solihull promoting Localism.
  4. To make Solihull Cleaner, Greener, Safer and Healthier.
