Local Groups

Over the last few years, the Brunswick area has seen local people get together to improve the area with different driving passions. This list comprises those groups which have good working relationships with each other and endeavour to share good practice, knowledge and resources.

Brunswick Tenants and Residents Association

This deals with residents’ concerns about their homes and environment.

The association also hosts Brunswick Neighbourhood Watch. Formed in 2016, this group seeks to encourage neighbours to watch out for each other and report any suspicious or negative activity to appropriate authorities.

Friends of Gartside Gardens and Green Spaces

Originally it focused on the park known as Gartside Gardens but over the last three years has extended its remit to include all green spaces in the Brunswick area.

Brunswick Wellbeing Community

This group provides food and refreshment for people, reaching out to the isolated, the disadvantaged and those with unsuitable accommodation. It also provides occasional services such as health checks and can redirect people to other helpful services.

Other groups

Other groups in the area include:

M13 Youth Project

A youth group for teenagers in the postcode area that covers the Brunswick neighbourhood.

Brunswick Church Community Hub

The Church, under its branding of Positive Steps, offers places for local groups to meet and socialise. It also offers people refreshments and computer use with free Internet connections.

Not for profit groups
