Community Resilience Forum

One Wellingborough Plus and partners are hosting forums for local people and organisations to work on community resilience. We would like you to join us at our second Community Resilience Forum on Zoom, to discuss how to help people in the town and borough during and after the Coronavirus pandemic.

The main aim of the One Wellingborough Plus Community Resilience Project is 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. 

A Series of Community Resilience Gatherings

One Wellingborough Plus partners invite you to a series of ‘Community Resilience forums’ that we are hosting for local people and organisations to work on community resilience planning.  These Community Resilience forums are on Zoom and for us all to discuss how to help people in the borough during and after the Coronavirus pandemic. 

The first Wellingborough Community Resilience Forum on February 26th was attended by 24 people from across our community, including representatives from churches, charities, businesses, community groups, local government plus people with no affiliation. It provided lots of really useful feedback and of course networking for all. We thought that it went really well, the feedback that we have received has shown that everyone enjoyed it and found it useful.

A full report including a transcript can be found on our blog. We also recorded it mainly for those who could not join in. With a few small edits we put it on YouTube, here it is from start to finish:

Our second Community Resilience forum is on Friday 19th March at 2pm. This time we will look at new ideas and solutions for community resilience, plus we will look at responses from the registration questionnaire (the form below)
