Community Action for Health and Wellbeing
Covid-19 has stretched already-overstretched health and wellbeing services almost to breaking point. Yet in the darkest times, sometimes the seeds of new growth can sprout. All over the UK, community groups have jumped in to support those in need.

What lessons can we tale from this experience? How can we help communities to be more resilient in the face of crises? How can we build back better to ensure the goodness and strengths that are out there are harnessed for wellbeing?

In this webinar we will hear perspectives and approaches from:
* Simon Sherbersky (Torbay Community Development Trust) on a pioneering asset-based approach to community development.
* Brendan Martin (Buurtzorg Britain and Ireland) - on Buurtzorg - an innovative Dutch approach to health and wellbeing – and its application in the UK.
* Jane Pightling (Evolutionary Connections) - on the opportunities and the challenges for the statutory sector when working with communities.

Join us for this interactive discussion - on Tuesday 23rd June at 7.30pm BST - to explore how action in communities can help build wellbeing and health.

In these unprecedented times we all need to find effective ways to support each other and build wellbeing together. This event is part of the Wellbeing Together Webinar Series run by the Network of Wellbeing (NOW).
