Streetlife, the local social network, has a simple aim: to help people across Britain make the most of where they live by connecting with nearby residents, groups, organisations and businesses.

The team believes that better connected neighbours build stronger communities, and that digital media has a key role to play in bringing together people with busy routines or reduced mobility, to discuss and improve the local issues they care about.

The site provides an easy way for locals to share practical information, advice, opinions, skills and resources. People sign up using their postcode, and can start and join conversations with others in their area. Users can customise their settings so they control how much information they receive, the areas they’re interested in, and what they share about themselves.

Main uses of the site include:

  • discussing nearby news, crime, planning proposals and public services
  • finding locals with common interests, organising and attending social groups and events
  • sharing skills and belonging with neighbours, from hedge-trimmers to spreadsheet skills
  • recommending and discovering local businesses and tradespeople
  • promoting, campaigning and volunteering for community projects and local causes is a privately funded limited company headquartered in Covent Garden, London.

Following a successful pilot in the London Borough of Wandsworth, is now available nationwide. The service is free for residents discussing local issues.
