5 Ways of Wellbeing

We All Need A Little Extra Support...

Many things can affect our health and wellbeing, particularly at this challenging time with COVID – 19 (CORONAVIRUS).

The All2gether in Matson, Robinswood and White City project is part of a more cohesive and joined up approach between local services.  Great emphasis will be placed on supporting vulnerable people who are socially isolated, suffering with mental health issues and long-term illness.

Sustainable Community Development

The concept of a “sustainable community” does not describe just one type of neighborhood, town, city or region. Activities that the environment can sustain and that residents want and can afford may be quite different from community to community.

Rather than being a fixed thing, a sustainable community is continually adjusting to meet the social and economic needs of its residents while preserving the environment’s ability to support it.

Safe & Healthy Community

The needs of everyone in the community are met and people feel safe, healthy and ultimately happy

Local Economic Community

Meet local needs locally wherever possible.

Environment

Our environment is appreciated, protected and enhanced and damage to the environment is minimised.

Skills and Knowledge

Maximise everyone's access to the skills and knowledge needed to play a full part in society.

Diversity

Value and protect diversity and local distinctiveness and strengthen local community and cultural identity.

Community decision-making

Empower all sections of the community to participate in decision-making and consider the social and community aspects of decisions.
