About Action for Sustainable LivingRecent posts


Action for Sustainable Living (AfSL) is an award-winning Manchester based charity working to engage, enthuse and support people take action on environmental sustainability.

We offer training and support to individuals, communities and organisations throughout Greater Manchester and wider UK.

Our supported volunteering model unlocks the potential of individuals to achieve positive and lasting social, environmental and economic change.

Our services for local authorities, schools, housing associations and businesses address environmental priorities including energy efficiency, waste management, sustainable travel and food growing. We work closely with organisations and their stakeholders, by sharing professional knowledge and infectious enthusiasm to deliver action on the ground.

In 2008 we won a Guardian Charity of the Year award in recognition of our upbeat, inclusive and people-centred approach to progressing sustainability.
