A new website offering local advice on community activities has been championed by a Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) minister.

Led by the Community Development Foundation, Just Act offers advice for people wanting to 'make a difference' in their area through a community project.

Offering guidance on how to launch local schemes, the website is also looking to recruit community champions who will answer questions on the forum.

The site is run in partnership with DCLG alongside organisations including the Big Lottery Fund, Social Enterprise UK, Campaign for Real Ale and Locality.

Communities minister Stephen Williams said: 'I am delighted to see the launch of Just Act. We want to see all communities use the opportunities we have provided to step up and take control and finding the right help and resources is absolutely key.

'I hope that communities and individuals all over the country will use Just Act to help them start their own journey towards greater activism and control of local issues.'
