Community Health & Wellbeing

Community First encourage and support collaborative activities, helping to secure the best health and wellbeing outcomes for people and rural communities.

We aim to connect community groups, charities, social enterprises and not for profit organisations with each other.  We also focus on strengthening links with statutory partners including NHS Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), Local Authorities.

We communicate with VCS organisations and stakeholders by:

• Informing
• Engaging
• Representing

Health and wellbeing is undergoing rapid, continuous change highlighting the need for regular, credible communication, engagement and representation.

A lot of work has taken place to encourage collaborations, foster opportunities to work together and to start ‘joining the dots’.  We encourage regular exchange of information, ideas and views on health and wellbeing to assist charities and community groups to deliver timely, vital services.
