Action on Litter
Litter is a major concern for many living, working and playing in the Wingrove area share.
Through support via the Community Innovation Fund and the dynamic Community Organising approach, which brings communities together by responding directly to what issues matter most to them, the Community Co-op has been successful in mobilising regular resident led community litter picks. The co-op has engaged in valuable dialogue with Newcastle City Council on litter and waste, resulting in positive cooperation between the bodies in beginning to tackle the issue. Further funding was also secured from ISOS Housing, to fund the Community Organiser role to develop further relationships with residents in the community.
Regular litter pick events open to all:
- Weekly – Every Monday, 1-3pm, meeting at the CHAT Trust
- Monthly – Every 3rd Saturday of the month, different meeting points

Many other litter picks are being initiated by individual residents and neighbours, playing a key role in ensuring they are part of the movement to make a real difference to the area.
