Powys Green Guide Community Action

Community Action

Across Powys there are local groups working on supporting the environment. These groups are able to make bigger changes, particularly in their localities, and are always looking for new members to grow their impact and help shape our society for the future. Some people find groups beneficial for inspiration, social support and to find a way through to a positive vision of the years ahead.

We have a search option so you can find find the right group for you. You can search both the topics that are of interest to you and the locality you are in.
