Involve Northwest’s Connect Us project adopts an Asset Based Community Development, strength based approach with all our Wirral Partners to look at increasing connectivity, access to information, community resilience, self-help, wellbeing and hopefully looking to tackle social isolation.
Since the start of the Connect Us project, the Community Connectors have knocked on 50, 787 doors, of which 11, 606 of these have been answered in order for the Connectors to listen to community members on a street level, share the project and look to make further connections in the community.
The Good Neighbour Scheme was introduced in October 2017 and aims to reignite communities where people feel valued and safe in their neighbourhoods. Giving permission back to people to look out for each other and feel part of a friendly, thriving neighbourhood.
To date 4,570 Wirral households, community settings and businesses have opted to show how proud they are of where they live by putting a sticker in their window saying that they are a ‘good neighbour’. It is hoped that this simple act might start conversations, bring people together, celebrate good neighbours and serve as a symbol of community spirit. Feeling connected to our neighbours and our communities can help to increase our health and wellbeing and reduces social isolation.’
Join the Community Connectors on their door knock of the year covering the Sandbrook area of Moreton.
