Improve Your Area

Want to make things better in your area but not sure how to start? Or need help getting people together?

Talk to us about how you can set up a community group that can take action and make a real difference in your area.

Community Groups

In 2015 Ward Forum grants were awarded to group of residents who wanted to carry out clean ups in Lee Mount and Dodge Holme estate, Mixenden.

The Abbey Park Tenants and Residents group received £500 from the Staying Well project for grit, bins and shovels to enable neighbours to help each other get around the estate safely during winter.

A group of parents in Mixenden got together to support Playing Out activities from Mixenden Library and applied for funding to make sure local children had plenty to do throughout the school holidays.

If you’d like to arrange a clean up in your area, or have an idea for another initiative to benefit the community, contact Ovenden and Mixenden Initiative on 01422 255402 or email

Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch is the largest voluntary crime prevention group in the country. People join Neighbourhood Watch for many different reasons, whether it is to improve safety around their home or to become part of a group and meet new people.

There are a number of Neighbourhood Watches in North Halifax you would be welcome to join. Or if you would like to start your own on your street, contact Ovenden and Mixenden Initiative on 01422 255402 or email
