Developing a Community Wellbeing Compact/Citizen’s Deal focusing on factors that keep people healthy and well
Communities of place, interest and identity have a vital contribution to make to health and wellbeing. The assets within communities such as skills and knowledge, social networks, local groups and community organisations are building blocks for good health. This workshop will consider how community-centred approaches that build on individual and community assets can become an essential part of local health plans and strategies. You will also hear about an exciting opportunity to get involved in a borough wide community asset mapping project called What’s Great About Dudley?
Advocating for children’s health and wellbeing
This workshop will share some of the ways in which partner organisations in Dudley currently engage with children and young people. Following this, group members will be given an opportunity to identify how the Health and Wellbeing Board can build on the existing good practice to continue to develop and improve their role as advocates for young people in the borough.
