This project now has it’s own separate website at www.highparktftc.org.uk.

 

High Park: Think Family, Think Community is an exciting new collaborative project that seeks to address the several issues in regards to the residents of the High Park area of Southport.

 

The partnership seeks to address the above issues by creating opportunities for community engagement in healthy lifestyles in High Park through joint responses to community needs.

 

The driving force behind the project is a community partnership that will work together and draw on each other’s strengths in order to produce positive outcomes for the whole of the High Park community. The community partnership is led by Brighter Living Partnership and examples of the  partners include (in alphabetical order):

 

– Age Concern Liverpool & Sefton

– Bishop David Sheppard Primary
– Home-Start
– Linaker Children’s Centre
– Parenting 2000
– Sefton CVS

– Sefton Pensioners Advocacy Centre
– St Simon and St Judes CE

 

Integral to the project are the voices of local people and the partners welcome those who want to get involved in the partnership itself and help to make positive changes in their community. The partnership seeks to work alongside High Park residents to maximize their engagement, involvement, and capacity to identify, access, own and develop their community.

 

Empowering local people to make changes in their community increases confidence and motivation and this is proven to improve mental health and wellbeing whilst at the same time enabling individuals to make positive changes for their families and community.The project is currently in the early stages of development but future activities will centre around healthy eating, getting active, developing volunteer opportunities and bringing the High Park community together.

 

The project is funded by Southport and Formby CCG and is coordinated via the Brighter Living Partnership.If you would like more information about the project, would like to be involved or if you know anybody who the project may be of interest to, please contact Rachel Wheble on 01704 517 810 or email rachel.wheble@brighterliving.org.uk
