It's Your Neighbourhood

It's Your Neighbourhood

If you are part of a volunteer-led group carrying out gardening activities, looking after your local environment and involving the community, we'd love to support, celebrate and give your group national recognition through our FREE It's Your Neighbourhood initiative - part of our Climate and Nature Friendly Communities Network!

Registration for 2024 has now closed, but do drop us an email to express an interest in taking part in 2025.

Find out about the free support, resources and national recognition available.

It's Your Neighbourhood is our community environmental improvement initiative which we manage with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) under the Britain in Bloom campaign. It runs alongside Beautiful Scotland but is non competitive and is based on the three pillars of community participation, environmental responsibility and gardening achievement.

It's Your Neighbourhood is designed for volunteer-led community groups which are cleaning and beautifying their neighbourhoods, whether through community allotments, after school wildlife clubs, school eco-groups, Friends of Park groups, or adopting pieces of derelict land.

We support and encourage participating groups from across Scotland, and recognise achievements with a series of certificates acknowledging the good work being done by communities to improve places.

Many It’s Your Neighbourhood entrants also now work with Beautiful Scotland groups adding value to beautification initiatives in villages, towns and cities all over Scotland.

What has been so important to the Sitooterie has been Keep Scotland Beautiful's It's Your Neighbourhood scheme - it has inspired us and actively encouraged us to drive forward our community plans.
