The Heart of Blyth project is bidding for funding from the Health Foundation to take more action to create a stronger community.
There are many factors which impact on our health as shown in this short video.
You have the local knowledge, perspective and passion for your town and know the strengths we can build on. You also understand the challenges and have ideas about how we could tackle them together. We have learned from the COVID-19 response that if communities pull together, we can achieve amazing things. This is a fantastic opportunity to shape what this funding could be used in your local community.
What does a strong community mean to you? It might mean people that look out for each other, that you know your neighbours or that people care about the area. When thinking about ‘community’ that might mean the people in your street, estate, or people using the park you visit, your friends from school or Facebook, or people with a similar background or culture. You might have ideas about how we could strengthen our community together?
Once we have gathered your ideas we will develop a Heart of Blyth plan which we will tell you more about in May.
This will be presented along with 11 other areas in England to national judges at the Health Foundation in June.
Five Local Authority applications will be selected in the summer.
