We want to build healthier and more resilient communities by ensuring people have equal access to services that make their lives better, including those that go further than providing medical services alone.
There are plenty of ideas out there run by organisations, small grassroots groups and individuals, aimed at helping people with non-clinical aspects of their lives which are key to their wellbeing.
We offer a place where they can collaborate with others and find support to maximise the impact of their efforts.

Why we do it

Reducing inequalities

We want to help build healthier and more resilient communities.

Our goal is to ensure people have equal access to services that make their lives better, including those that go further than providing medical services alone. There are plenty of ideas out there to help people with non-clinical aspects of their lives which are key to their wellbeing.

We are keen to support these ideas, help them realise their potential and build a more resilient community together.

Promoting collaboration and cultural change

We believe that bringing healthcare and community organisations together will benefit the people of Wirral.

One Wirral belongs to everybody, from big to small organisations, NHS to voluntary and community sector, to individuals. It is a platform for smaller organisations to be actively involved in accessing large scale funding and having an opportunity to be involved in wider equality projects. For larger organisations, to share knowledge with individuals who have a great idea!

Together, we are greater than the sum of our parts.

How we do it

Community

Development

Our Community Development Workers identify new ideas, opportunities and resources currently existing within the community, in an organic process that requires conversations with organisations, grassroots groups, volunteers and service users.

They listen to their ideas and work together to develop solutions which include other individuals, associations or institutions who share similar goals and bring added value to their projects.

Our objective is to facilitate collaboration to create synergies, maximise resources and achieve the greatest community impact.

Some projects are ready to go and only need start-up help, while others need an Action Group. Action Groups are wider support teams with the skills and experience to move a project idea into reality.

An Action Group facilitates connections with key stakeholders and partners needed to make the project happen. It also provides infrastructural support and access to larger pots of money, which are only available to organisations that work collaboratively.

Once a project is mature enough, it is implemented by our partners, whilst we ensure its community impact is measured.
