Get together with your community and hold a street party this summer in aid of Action for Children
A street party is about bringing your community together. From village greens to community centres, cul-de-sacs to back gardens, gather your friends and family, invite your neighbours, and bring the festivities to your community while supporting vulnerable children across the UK.
Street parties are more than trestle tables and white tablecloths – we want your party to reflect the community that you’re a part of. We’d love to see groups getting together in all kinds of venues and locations up and down the country – the more unusual the better!
Organising a street party is easier than you think, and we’ll be on hand to support you every step of the way. Sign up now to receive your handy guide to help you plan and give you inspiration for what to do on the day.

How much does it cost to sign up?
It’s completely free to sign up and receive your guide to organising your street party! We encourage you to raise as much as you can with your street party, an we have loads of handy tips and advice to help you make your event a huge success.
When should I hold my street party?
We’re asking you to pick a date in June for your party, but if that doesn’t work for you, feel free to choose a date that is more convenient! Remember to contact your Regional Fundraising Manager to let them know when your party will be.
How do I handle money?
It’s a good idea to always count and carry money with two people, and to make sure money is stored safely and securely.
Organise a float in advance if you will need one, and plan where money will be safely stored on the day.
Do I need insurance to hold a street party?
Check the insurance cover at the venue you are using, as you may be covered by their insurance. If you are part of an official Action Squad (or you set one up!) and you have completed all the checks, you can use Action for Children’s public liability insurance.

Otherwise, you could look at taking out a Temporary Event Notice, or you might not need anything at all – check with your local council to see what the regulations are in your area. What you need will differ depending on if you plan on serving alcohol or having live music.
