Together for Change:

Pembrokeshire Communities Working Together

If nothing else, the COVID-19 crisis has given us a focus – on ourselves, in our own homes, and in our communities. We have worked together to meet individual needs and to help each other, and it has worked. Established groups have adapted to the crisis and many new groups have started – all to keep people safe and well. If we can do it in a pandemic, why not for all the other things we need?

What next?

Let’s keep the focus on community and let’s prepare for positive change by:

  • Working together to share good ideas and keep them flowing.
  • Sustaining our successes built up recently and longer term.
  • Keeping and developing local supply chains.
  • Identifying local issues and solving problems using local skills.
  • Planning forward for our own communities.

Interested in going forward together?  

Every community is different, and we will all have reacted differently according to local need.  There are lots of really good ideas out there so why not share them? We can save time and money by learning from each other.

The charity Solva Care has received funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to bring community groups together in Pembrokeshire to network and provide mutual support. We started with a showcase event at the Merlin Theatre in March and now want to make contact with community groups to shape the next stage of our Project ‘Together for Change’  so that as many communities can benefit as possible.

Register for our first event

‘Together for Change’ is a Pembrokeshire-wide partnership project hosted by Solva Care. We are planning a Zoom online event to share information on Tuesday 30 June 10-11.30am (full programme and Zoom details will be sent out on 29 June).

The event is intended for all community groups: new, old or in gestation, or for community minded individuals. Please register by emailing Project Coordinator Jessie Buchanan on research@solvacare.co.uk before the 26 June giving the following information: your name, organisation and number of volunteers (if applicable), contact details, and area of interest in community development. Please let Jessie know if you would like to participate but have trouble with accessing  Zoom and we will see if we can help.
