Working together to support “Healthy people living in healthy places”
Communities are the experts in their own lives, with different skills, needs and ideas.
With support they can run projects in their own way which really make a difference to
well-being. We are making this a reality by working with communities and front-line staff
to change the way we do things.

The event will cover and offer help in areas such as:

Receive help and support for yourself or your organisation

Help identify where we need to encourage and support new developments, services, groups and clubs

Become part of our Ageing Better Together proposal and Releasing Community Capacity Programme

Working together to support

On 9th January you can find out about:

New projects that local people are developing supported by the Releasing Community Capacity Programme

The help, training and development available for organisations, communities  and individuals to develop an idea or make an existing service better

The money that the Health and Well-being Board has set aside to support new community developments

How you can get more involved or get support for your organisation, project or idea

The local Services4Me website and add information about your service, organisation or group

There will be an opportunity to tell Unique Improvements:

About your project, organisation or idea so we can help you promote it

About unmet needs and service gaps in your area, or things you would like to do but cannot find locally

You will be able to meet:

Other people, clubs and organisations with similar needs or wants to yourself, however unusual your interest might be

Become part of the Big Lottery ‘Ageing Better Together’ proposal:

Contribute to the vision and strategy to help older people stay active and involved in their communities

Discuss priorities for the services we should develop and support to reduce isolation

Help develop the ‘older people’s partnership’ to deliver the proposal, and to shape the future priorities for older people

Discuss how we support communities to take the lead, and how we support older people to lead the Ageing Better Together Partnership
