Live Here Love Here is a positive, people-powered campaign focused on improving our local environment and building a sense of civic pride in our local communities.
Most people know us as the anti-litter people but, in reality, our work expands to much more than that.
We all want to see positive changes to where we live - cleaner streets with less dog fouling, more biodiversity and better use of unused spaces.
At Live Here Love Here, we are passionate about creating a healthier and greener Northern Ireland. We believe that we can all do one small thing to help to make a big difference in our communities.
Litter blights our towns, countryside, beaches and parks. We support groups and individuals like you who want to take action into their own hands and help minimise litter. We have a number of clean up campaigns that you can join, such as BIG Spring Clean, Healthy Oceans Health Minds and Adopt A Spot.

Live Here Love Here delivers different grant schemes throughout the year. If you wish to improve our local environment, collect marine litter or pollinate in school and rural settings, then there's something for you!

Through partnership working and ‘one voice’ messaging across TV, social media and billboards, we have built strong relationships with the public. In 2018, we introduced the unforgettable irate, magenta puppet, 'Al'. Al is disgusted by all things litter and not afraid to tell you so! The character delivers memorable messages and appeals to all age ranges, rallying against litter and driving behaviour change.
