Let's FACE it!

CBC staff working at The Twitten Sheltered Housing Scheme

What is the Let’s FACE it! initiative?

Let’s FACE (Focus Action for Crawley’s Environment) it! is a Crawley Borough Council initiative that supports local people and businesses in improving their environment in which they live and work through volunteering. The aim of the initiative, launched in 2005, is to increase levels of community cohesion and social inclusion, and help make neighbourhoods cleaner and greener.

How does it work?

Residents, community groups and businesses approach their ward councillor or the council with an idea for a project. Our Let’s FACE it! Coordinator then helps residents and councillors to organise and promote their event, provide tools and equipment, health and safety advice and access to specialist knowledge and skills.

Types of projects

How can I get involved?

If you have an idea for a project in your area please contact your Ward Councillor. To find out whom your Ward Councillor is please visit the Your Councillor page.

Environmental Grants

Your community group could be entitled of a grant of up to £500 for an environmental project.

Money from the grant could go towards tools to maintain a flower bed, paint to freshen up some tired looking benches or plants for a communal garden.

If your community organisation would like to receive up to £500 towards an environmental project, please fill in the form below and send it to Matthew Gaffar, Let’s FACE it! Coordinator at the Town Hall.
