Community Forum focuses on well-being

PLANED has held another successful event as part of the Community Forum Network.

Focusing on community well-being and resilience, the event attracted over 30 people from local town and community councils, community associations, Pembrokeshire County Council (PCC), Pembrokeshire’s Public Services Board, Welsh Government.

Attendees heard presentations on how to qualify for PCCs’ community asset transfers (https://www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/community-asset-transfer)  and the new Enhancing Pembrokeshire grant. Representatives of local communities also talked about their community projects: East Williamston’s Jubilee Park, Fishguard’s Lota Park and Narberth’s swimming pool and library.

The event also introduced the new PLANED Community Well-being and Resilience project. Karen Scott of PLANED said: “This project is a two-year pilot, funded by the Arwain Sir Benfro LEADER project. Our new project officers, Anna Jones and Matt Townsend, will work with up to a dozen town and community councils during this time, to explore how they can improve community well-being and help to shape the county-wide well-being Plan, required under the Well-being of Future Generations Act”

Town and community councils who are interested in taking part in this project are invited to contact project staff at PLANED to arrange an exploratory discussion.  Email: information@planed.org.uk
