Connected Communities are where people and community organisations come together to provide mutual help and support. Connected people and communities strengthen our community, reduce social isolation loneliness and enable local people to experience greater wellbeing.
The Council’s Connected Communities strategy (PDF, 488KB) links in with the Council’s corporate plan which sets out the broad outline of how Cheshire East Council will support and engage with communities including the voluntary, community and faith sector and the many active volunteer based partnerships. The connected communities strategy has five key themes of:
- Connected to People – helping people in communities to become more connected to others.
- Connected to Service – delivering services differently, with more community outreach services.
- Connected to Neighbourhoods – strengthening networks and partnerships across neighbourhoods, towns and villages.
- Connected to Voluntary, Community and Faith – developing the VCF sector infrastructure and our links to the thematic communities.
- Connected Decision Making – local people influencing decision making, policy and the way we commission services.
