How can we help?

If you need help using this website, the following questions are designed to help you.

What is is a website set up by the Sustainable Communities North East Initiative (SCNEI). It aims to help people across the North East of England to create sustainable communities where they live.

The website provides a brief history of the SCNEI, what sustainable development means, what sustainable communities are, and what we can all do here in the North East to help. Within the site there is a wealth of information that relates to what communities can do to make a difference and create sustainable communities where they live.

How do I get involved with the initiative?

The SCNEI would like to hear from community groups and individuals (who represent a community group) on what other information, including factsheets, should be included in the Brighter Futures Together toolkit. To help the SCNEI to develop the  toolkit you can submit your ideas, please contact us.

Please also let us know if you are using the toolkit, and how you are using the toolkit. We would love to hear.

Where and how can I tell the SCNEI about my community’s local sustainability projects?

The SCNEI will be building a collection of the great community projects happening across the North East. If you have a successful, sustainability related community project that you want to tell us about you can submit your project to the SCNEI by filling out an online projects submission form. Simply fill out the form and press the submit button. Do try to answer all the questions as best you can. Alternatively, if you cannot access the online form, please contact us.

Where can I report a page or link that does not work?

Should you come across a page or link that does not work properly, please let us know.

I cannot find what I am looking for on the site.  What can I do?

If you’re looking for something specific, you can use the search box at the top left hand side of each page. You can also search there for specific projects or factsheets that will help you and your group to carry out projects.
