Stickyboard Story

Our Story

In 2010 we set out to help people connect with their community. We wanted to create a single space where people could discover what was going on around them and start to feel part of their neighbourhoods. So we left our jobs to build the 21st Century's Village Noticeboard.

Starting from a bedroom we built a noticeboard for our local area, then we expanded it across London, and now we cover all 1.67 million UK postcodes with over 250,000 local items and partnerships with organisations up and down the country.

Having completed our development in 2014 we opened up our enterprise to community ownership expanding our network of supporters across the country. Looking ahead we continue to work with people in the UK and abroad to build stronger communities.
