New Community Resilience Forums Continue

Wellingborough Organisations and the Co-op are hosting forums for local people and organisations to work on community resilience planning. We would like you to join us on a second series of Community Resilience Forums on Teams, to discuss how to help people in the town and borough during and after the Coronavirus pandemic. Jonathan, Co-op Member Pioneer for Wellingborough invites you to the second of the new series of Community Resilience Forums next Friday (25th March) at 2pm.

The aims of Wellingborough Community Resilience Forum are to bring people and groups from across the borough together, to hear people’s concerns and ideas, and see what practical steps we can take to collectively help to meet some of the emerging needs, and provide some coordination and direction for our efforts where possible. 

New Community Resilience Forums started off with lively interactive discussions on Friday 25th February at 2pm. This is the first forum that Wellingborough Organisations and the Co-op are hosting for local people and organisations to work on community resilience planning. 14 people joined us on the first of a second series of Community Resilience Forums in Wellingborough on Teams.

The forum discussed what community is and how to build resilience during an interactive presentation designed to get people talking. Delegates then talked about what they are doing and we discussed how we can work together, everyone was very positive and were keen to share with each other. Read more and watch our first New Community Resilience Forum here.

This time we will look at how local service providers can co-operate with each other to provide solutions for community resilience, plus we will look at responses from the registration questionnaire (below). Join us for a short presentation and a discussion on Teams, to see if you can help us and to see if we can help you. It’s a free event, all you need to do is register, we will then send you the Teams link to the email that you registered with.

At the start of the forum on Teams, everyone will be given the chance to introduce themselves and, if applicable, the organisation they represent. To help Jonathan before the event, he also wants to know a little bit about you and what activities you are doing. Please register by filling in the form on the registration page, alternatively you can also register by sending an email to info@wellingborough.org or by calling 07954 082802.

See you at the next Community Resilience Forum on Friday 25th March at 2pm!
