#SteppingUp

The #SteppingUp campaign puts the spotlight on 5 simple steps people can take which can have a hugely beneficial effect personally, in communities and for public services.

The 5 simple steps people are being encouraged to take are

  1. Volunteering – this could be anything from neighbourhood watch to coaching at sporting clubs
  2. Providing informal care – for example checking on vulnerable older neighbours
  3. Giving children the best start in life – encouraging parents to take more responsibility for their child’s development and wellbeing
  4. Keeping healthy and active – encouraging people to take more care of their own health and lead healthier lifestyles
  5. Reusing and recycling more – 52.6% of all household waste is now being recycled, composted or reused in Essex. We want to work with residents to encourage more use of kerb side recycling collections -recycling waste is a sustainable way of managing household waste and helps to look after the environment of Essex.
