We are trying to build a community of people who want to look after their neighbours and build better neighbourhoods.
We never know what is coming around the corner. Who could have forseen the lockdown at the start of 2020 (for example)? If you are worried about the incresing atomisation of our society, then joining and becoming a ward member is a good first step.
No, you do not. Further more you wont be harrassed with emails begging for money either. When we do raise funds, it will be for a specific project that is well communicated and as transparant as possible.
