Launceston Together is a social network to connect and empower people to improve their lives, their community and the city of Launceston.
It is a fast and easy way for individuals AND organisations to share ideas, find out what matters to others, or exchange time and skills with your neighbours. You can also pledge your support to community projects that you believe in.
Here’s ten ways you can make a real difference:
