Yate and Dodington's Priority Neighbourhoods are areas where Community Engagement Officers feel residents could benefit from improved Skills, Education and Training and Health.
A Community Lead group works with voluntary agencies and community groups to deliver these improvements.
Abbotswood Action Group is a mixture of local people, councillors and representatives of local organisations who work together to improve the local area for all who live and work here. Everyone who takes part does so as a volunteer.
The group help to put on annual community events, clean up days, workshops and projects throughout the year. Everyone is very welcome to enjoy all the events and join in with what we do.

Thanks to our volunteers, Chipping Sodbury and Yate St John Ambulance division has been supplying First Aid to local events for several years, from a variety of Athletics at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex to Horton fell runs, Gymkhanas, carnivals and Heritage events.
Providing this vital First Aid is a rewarding and often challenging experience. St John Ambulance as an organisation has helped Badgers, Cadets and Adults to achieve many social and fundamental life skills. Its members are vital to the organisation and in return; members achieve qualifications and confidence and a whole new network of friends.
