Some Frequently Asked Questions”
How soon will my town be able to go Totally Locally?
It depends on you and the people helping in your town. It can be as short as 8 weeks from your initial conversations to your launch event, sometimes it takes a little longer.
Is it really free?
Yes. We grant you a free license for your town as a volunteer group and it will always be free as long as you are a voluntary organisation. The costs of launching Totally Locally depends on how big an impact you wish to make. You would need to set a budget for yourselves to do a launch event though to cover your printing for posters, letters and events. Many towns group together to crowdfund this or ask their local Council or Councillors for a community grant. You will need to work with a local printer or designer to get your kit set up and ready for your town, it isn’t set up for you. OR you can just beg and borrow. This has been done too. It’s all about the passion you put into it. People will see that.
Can you help us to set Totally Locally up?
We can come and talk, run workshops and generally show you how to do things. This part isn’t free, as it is our time you are paying for. To find out costs please email firstname.lastname@example.org
You need to run the campaign yourselves, which will mean you will have a campaign that will be sustainable. We can show you how to do this.
We are not funded and this isn’t our job, it’s our passion and the free kit has helped over 60 towns in the UK and further afield. It’s about self-help and collaboration, and it works, really well!
Do you do talks or anything to help us get going?
Yes. Our talks and workshops are fun, unbelievable practical, free of bullsh*t and accessible to anyone. We’ve spoken at events and worked with groups across the UK, Australia, New Zealand, France & Ireland. We help people to look at things differently, give practical tools to make things happen. Talks and workshops are available from £500 (depending on location) plus travel expenses.
