Community Resilience

Liverpool John Moores University are working on a project for CHAMPS (the Cheshire & Merseyside public health collaborative) on approaches to developing community resilience.

They would like to include project case studies from across Cheshire and Merseyside.

They would like to include examples of any initiatives/projects around the following:

1. Encouraging inter-community collaboration/ social network development, e.g.:

 a.Training up key individuals in the community (community champions etc.)

 b. Developing innovative community schemes and supporting volunteering (e.g. ‘men in sheds’)

 c. Using digital media to promote social connections (e.g. internet support groups)

 d. Social prescribing.

 2. Promoting community governance and levels of control (e.g.community budgets)

 3. Enhancing environmental assets

 4. Supporting resilience in the economy and at work (e.g. local jobs for local people; local supply chains)

 5. Developing asset based mapping and other measures

 6. Developing workforce skills in promoting community resilience (e.g. training staff in asset mapping and community development)

 This is could be a chance to showcase the work you have been involved in.
