Every action, no matter how big or small, makes a difference!

If our region is to achieve the CQSS2030 vision and targets there’s a lot to do and we need everyone to play a part. We encourage all businesses, groups, organisations and individuals to celebrate what they’re doing and inspire others by adding their actions here.

Take a look at what’s being done, who’s been doing it, and the difference they’ve made.
