Thriving Communities

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

How will we reach these goals? We will:
Develop the Youth Council to make sure the views of young people are represented
Deliver Music in the Park 2022 and Queens Jubilee Celebrations
Review and enhance the community hubs as a primary way to work closely with residents
Develop the visitor offer in South Ribble


How will we know we're succeeding?

  • Number of new savers with Unify Credit Union in South Ribble (200, Annually)
  • The number of claimants as a proportion of resident population of area aged 16-64 is better than North West average (Quarterly)
  • Number of residents participating in activities delivered by the Council (400, Annually)
  • Number of people who have successfully completed basic digital skills training (300, Annually)
