Type: Strategy
Region: Northern Ireland
Description:

The aim of this strategy is to strengthen communities and improve health and social wellbeing by placing an increasing emphasis on community development, prevention and early intervention.

The main purpose of this strategy is to recognise and support the important and pivotal role that community development plays in improving health and wellbeing. The Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) and Public Health Agency (PHA) want to see strong, resilient communities where everyone has good health and wellbeing - places where people look out for each other and have community pride in where they live.

Community development brings forward an agenda which tackles the root causes of inequalities and supports and promotes prevention and early intervention. This can only be achieved in a full partnership which includes service users, carers, families, local communities, communities of interest, volunteers, and the community and voluntary sectors, as well as a range of statutory health and social care organisations such as Local Commissioning Groups (LCGs) and Health and Social Care Trusts together with other
public agencies.
