Picture of a puzzle?
I’ve worked on the Communities and Wellbeing Team (CWT) for over two years now, and I’m continually amazed at the knowledge, experience and breadth of work that we cover.
At the forefront of mine and my colleagues’ minds is, what do our Communities need and how can we help?
Efficiency is also a key word at this moment in time, given the rapidly reducing income from central Government. In plain language, this means we have fewer people, less budget and still a need or expectation to deliver or fund certain projects.
I’m trying to start a sentence which says “the CWT does x, y and z”. But it’s really hard because it’s not straightforward, sometimes complex and the outcomes or impact is not immediately evident … but here goes:
“The CWT focus on the health, safety and wellbeing of individual residents and families, cohorts, groups and communities. We protect those that are vulnerable, we enable those that are excluded or unheard and we look at the bigger picture to connect and make change.”
Reads like fluffy corporate speak, doesn’t it?
Ok, so what would happen if the CWT weren’t here, let’s try a few specifics as examples…
