About Stronger Sandwell

What’s “Stronger Sandwell”?

‘Stronger Sandwell’ is a new approach to improving health in our local area.

The Council, SCVO and other organisations will be shifting more resources towards local community projects.   That is, projects run BY local people FOR local people.

That way we’ll better harness Sandwell’s ‘strengths’, including our community’s ideas and skills!

How can I get involved?

Just tell us your ideas!  Whether you’re an established voluntary sector organisation, a local club, a group of friends or an individual.  We want to work with you to make your ideas happen.  So get in touch!

For example, do you have an idea that will help people get fit?  Maybe we can help you make it happen and promote it in our #MoveMoreSandwell campaign!  Or you may have thought about how to help people eat a healthier diet, or reduce loneliness?

Visit the page on Holly’s Race to see an example of how we made one little girl’s great healthy idea come true!
