The latest in our series of community resilience events took place Friday 15 October, with over 80 people taking part.

The fourth in the ‘Stronger, healthier, better together’ series, once again brought voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) partners across the area together, with the aim of giving them the opportunity to ask questions direct about health and care developments taking place.

We are grateful to everyone who gave their time to make this an inspiring and exciting question time event, including our speakers, VCSE partners and volunteers. We will be sharing some of the questions we didn’t get chance to answer here in the coming weeks.
