Streetlife, the local social network, has a simple aim: to help people make the most of where they live by connecting with their neighbours.
The website provides a free and easy place to share local news, views, recommendations and resources, enabling people with busy routines or reduced mobility to keep in touch with their community.
Conversations started on Streetlife have helped unite lost pets with owners, expose doorstep scammers, save threatened public services and recall local history. The site is also encouraging real-world friendships, with neighbours sharing gardening equipment, IT advice and dentist recommendations, organising craft groups, street parties and book clubs.
Voluntary organisations have already used Streetlife to find volunteers, promote events and share news. The site is free for non-profit organisations to use and already has a growing audience across the area.
