Love Local is Civic Voice’s campaign to uncover the local DNA of different places – Love Local will reveal what makes them distinctive and you proud to live there.

It is simple to join in – complete the short survey asking what you love about your area and why and send us some images. Civic Voice will build a constantly updating digital mosaic of the results – showing what people love about the different parts of England and encouraging others to give voice to their feelings too. We pledge to champion the things you care about.
