Community Living 01

This KS3 Citizenship quiz takes a look at community living. The word community has several different definitions in a dictionary. In citizenship, it refers to people living in a particular area. It can also mean a group of people who share common interests. The people who live in your village, town or city could be classed as a community. People who share the same religious beliefs, people who play online computer games and people who are in business could also be classed as communities too.

Communities often organise community events. This is done for different reasons. Sometimes, a community event is intended to raise money but other times, a carnival or fete is organised so that the whole community can relax and enjoy themselves. An example of this is the Notting Hill Carnival in London, which began as a small community event in 1966. Now it is a huge annual event attracting thousands of visitors from all over the world, but is still organised by the local community.

Sometimes, people are left out of a community. It isn't usually anything deliberate, perhaps they don't have children of school age or maybe they can't walk very well. There are many other reasons. Some communities are better than others at looking after these excluded people and organise events that will help them to join in with community life, or organise visits if they can't leave their home without help (house-bound).
