Together for Change’s Work
Together for Change’s commitment to working across sectors aims to bring a consensus on future approaches to the provision and delivery of support for communities. The Programme operates at a strategic level, developing strategy and planning that will inform an agreement and shared vision on community health and wellbeing within the county and at practice level, with communities, gathering knowledge, establishing strong understandings of existing structures and forging connections.
At its inception, the project convened two meetings which were held online in June 2020 on the Future of Support for Community Led Action in Pembrokeshire. The first meeting brought together third- and public-sector managers, and the second was attended and informed by community representatives. The meetings focused on developing an understanding of the impact of COVID-19 upon communities and how community-led action could be sustained in the future. Reports of the meetings identified three clearly-definable areas for further work: developing a joint vision and strategy; knowledge to inform the way forward; and, practical support for community groups and organisations to build community strength and resilience. The reports are available on the Resources page and these areas have formed the basis of the three Workstreams going forward. For more detail on the Workstreams, see below.
