We are living in challenging times and the power of community has rarely been so important.
Healthier Fleetwood was formed in early 2016 to make a connection between the Town's residents and with local support and services as a means to improve health and wellbeing. Fleetwood has some of the most deprived wards in the Country for health, education and income but it also has a resilience and sense of community bred into generations of no-nonsense, warm and wonderful people.
Our role is to CONNECT individuals and groups, so they grow in CONFIDENCE and take more CONTROL over their health and the decisions that affect their lives. In more 'normal' times this was often nothing more than taking a moment to listen to somebody and help them to find their path, in other cases we have been instrumental in helping to set up groups and projects that are now an integral part of the Fleetwood community.
We are independent of but work closely with the NHS, local authorities, businesses, the education, faith and voluntary sectors. The 'Healthier Fleetwood Partnership' is a pro-active forum where the member organsations are encouraged to work together in new and imaginative ways for the benefit of everyone living and associate with the Town. The success of this approach and it's impact on health has been recognised by awards from the NHS and extensive media coverage.
In the second half of 2020, social distancing restrictions have seriously disrupted the vibrant network of activities, groups and events however we aim to continue making these vital connections and sharing the many positives stories coming out of the Fleetwood community.
