I’m Jonathan Hornett, the Co-op Member Pioneer for Wellingborough. I’m here to connect with the community and help support local causes. I work in partnership with many Wellingborough Organisations on this site and to coordinate our forums.
This time the Community Resilience Forum was bang in the middle of Co-op Fortnight, and the theme for the fortnight is unwrapping co-ops. So we looked at how we work together and how can co-operate with each other more to provide solutions and services. This followed on nicely from last month, where we looked at mental health and how we can co-operate with each other to provide solutions for wellbeing.
Thank you to the nine people that joined us for a short presentation and a sharing session. Lots of new activities and events were talked about and in the sprit of co-operation, delegates offered each other help, thank you for co-operating with each other! Watch the video of this forum above. The next Community Resilience Forum will be on Friday 29th July at 2pmPost navigationCommunity
Wellingborough Organisations and the Co-op are hosting forums for local people and organisations to work with each other on community resilience planning. The aims of Wellingborough Community Resilience Forum are to bring people and groups from across the town 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.
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 during and after the Coronavirus pandemic. Jonathan, Co-op Member Pioneer for Wellingborough invites you to the fifth Community Resilience Forum this Friday (24th June) at 2pm and because it’s Co-op Fortnight, this month it’s about working together.
Following on from last month’s Mental Health Community Resilience Forum, where we looked at how we can co-operate with each other to provide solutions for wellbeing, we found that co-operation is more effective and more enjoyable than competition, after all we all want to make our community a better place to live and work in. It’s obvious that we can’t do everything, but we can do so much more together, and that’s why we need to work with each other to improve peoples lives.
This time the Community Resilience Forum is bang in the middle of Co-op Fortnight, and the theme for the fortnight is unwrapping co-ops. So we will look at how we work together and how can co-operate with each other more to provide solutions and services. 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.
