A new website has launched across Wiltshire with a simple aim: to help people make the most of where they live by connecting with their neighbours.
Streetlife provides a free and easy way for communities to share news, views, recommendations and resources. Described as “the online equivalent of chatting over the garden fence”, Streetlife enables people with busy routines or reduced mobility to keep in touch with what’s happening locally and become more involved in their communities.
More than 1 million people in over 4,000 communities across the country have adopted Streetlife and now Wiltshire locals are joining in too. Nearly 2000 people are now members in Salisbury alone.
Conversations started on Streetlife have helped to find lost pets, save local pubs, expose doorstep scammers and set up community garden projects. The site also encourages real-world friendships, with neighbours sharing DIY equipment, IT advice and dentist recommendations, and organising walking groups and coffee mornings.
Matt Boyes, Founder & CEO, is delighted to see the people of Wiltshire connecting on Streetlife: “Within every neighbourhood there’s a wealth of knowledge and support. Streetlife makes it easy for local people to share that and together build stronger, safer, better connected communities. That’s why we’re encouraging everyone to get involved!”
