  1. We often get asked technical questions about how to use Twitter or set up a Facebook page. Communities may get asked about Volunteer Policies or need standard H&S training. Create a reference library and don't reinvent the wheel!

  2. Show community groups, networks, individuals how to use a service like wallwisher to make a free online open-access pin-board for their area. This is a great way to publicise what you are doing/thinking/planning, and for others to see at a glance everything that's happening around them.

  4. There are 8,000+ Parish & Town Councils across England, that can 'precept' (tax)....they should be encouraged to do so in order to 'trigger' Big Soc type ventures
