Getting involved with your community
There are many ways for you to get involved with your local community.
Have your say about local places and services
Find out about current and future consultations. Many of our consultations are open to anyone, while others are for particular communities.
Participate on scrutiny boards
Scrutiny boards examine decisions, policies and overall performance of services and make recommendations for improvements, ensuring that the people of Rotherham get the best public services available.
You can make a big difference to the community by volunteering. Do-it.org.uk provides you with details of the current volunteering opportunities within the region.
Becoming a local school governor
Many schools will welcome new governors who have transferable skills developed at work, or who have a particularly good understanding of the community served by the school. Direct Gov provides full information on how to get involved.
Participate in area assemblies
Area Assemblies bring together local councillors, businesses, colleges, health, police, churches, community groups and anybody else who can help make their local area a better place to live. The assembly is a partnership of individuals, agencies and organisations which work together to tackle local issues and to listen to local people.
We will regularly ask for feedback on our performance. You can help us to develop services by telling us what we do well and what you think we need to improve.
Attend public council meetings
You are able to attend public council meetings to find out more about decision making.
