- Reach out to a wider community through working closely with GP surgeries, health professionals, promote health and wellbeing in the community with sharing resources and working in partnership with outside agencies.
How we will achieve our goals
The Community Award would enable us to completely refurbish the Community Centre and open our doors to a wider community, to be able to encourage children, elderley, youth with the ‘One Community’ vision. We could open a fully operational community cafe initially where those who are socially isolated can meet and make new friends.
