Saving carbon and saving money are linked, so by reducing the amount of energy we use, and the amount of food we waste we help lower our carbon footprint and reduce our spending. These guides provide tips, resources, contacts and ideas to help.


Homes First supports community growing in our neighbourhoods. The guidance below supports applications to grow on Housing Revenue Land.

There are community gardens in some of our estates, follow the links to find out how to get involved.
