Better Together

Published: Friday, 29th March 2019

Come to one of our Better Together community meetings where you can share your ideas for services, projects and events directly with the people responsible for organising them.

More than 70 residents came along to share their suggestions at our first Better Together meeting this spring.

If you want to make changes in your area, suggest an improvement or find out what’s being done about an issue you care about, we have three more Better Together meetings coming up.

You can share your ideas with the people responsible for providing your local services. You don’t have to speak in front of a large group, you can talk individually to staff who can help.

We're also looking for people to be community champions who wish to attend Better Together to represent and feedback to their group. As a community champion you only have to help as much as you can and what you do will depend on what is happening in your neighbourhood and what your interests are. You only have to help as much as you can – and you’ll be offered a free accredited training course for your time.
