Communities

Here are a few ideas for how your group can get involved with the day.  Activity can take place on or around the day itself at a time that best suits you.

Make some noise

Run an event or activity that everyone can be part of – it doesn’t need to be hard work to be high impact. Or, if you want to get involved in making a longer-term difference, why not use our Communities-Social-Action-Toolkit with guidance around how to set up a social action project.

Include a story about Stephen Lawrence Day in your community newsletter or add a news story to your website.

Ask your members to share their support for the day on social media using the hashtags #BecauseofStephen and #SLDay

Make a lasting difference

We have developed a toolkit to provide groups with advice and guidance on how to design and set up a social action project to improve the lives of people where you live. Download the toolkit here.

Raise funds

If you would like to mark the day by raising funds for the work of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, we’ve got lots of ideas for fundraising, from organising a coffee and cake morning to  holding a gaol-athon where you compete to see who can shoot the most netball, basketball or football goals in two minutes. Why not download our communities fundraising pack full of ideas, advice and guidance.  Download our fundraising pack here.

We’d love to inspire others with what you’re doing. Let us know what you’re up to by tagging us into your social media posts and updating our activities map!
