Welcome to Totnes Alive! – the directory of all the opportunities to get involved in this vibrant town.
It’s easy to get involved
We are here to make it easy for anyone and everyone to make a difference around Totnes and around the world by taking part in community activities, events, voluntary groups, charities or campaigns.
Doing what you love
Please look around the site to discover more about what you would enjoy getting involved in that helps make life better for our local and global community.
Our community spirit means there are all kinds of opportunities no matter what your passion, skills or circumstances.
Whether you love helping people one to one, being part of a team, working outside, contributing quietly from home or using a specific skill there’s something here for you.
Every one of us has something to offer our community and planet.
Making a difference that matters to you
Do you care about the climate emergency, threats to wildlife or plastic pollution?
Would you like to support people facing poor health, inequality, poverty or isolation?
Would you like to help make your community safer, more welcoming or better cared for?
Whatever interests you, there is something here for you to do.
Following your inclination
We all get that gentle nudge to do something now and again, often followed by a zillion reasons why we can’t or it’s not enough. But whether we are nudged to make a cake for a poorly neighbour or set up a new global movement, it’s all equally helpful and valuable. You can get involved if you’d like to – no matter what.
For everyone in the community
The media and politics can encourage us to judge people who have different beliefs or lifestyles. Totnes Alive! focuses instead on the many more ways in which we are similar. We all like to celebrate, to belong and to contribute something to causes and communities that matter to us.
Have a browse around and see what nudges you to take the next step.
