What is a thriving community?
Thriving communities are places where:
⦁ Residents have positive mental health
⦁ People get involved and have a sense of belonging
⦁ Communities can access services and support when they need them
|Establish South Ribble Together hubs||Agreeing plans for neighbourhood areas and a borough food bank network|
|Deliver a mental health support programme for young people||Building on the recommendations of young people who took part in the MH2K project|
|Establish a youth council||By working with schools to promote democracy and design a model that works for young people|
