Developing our Community Wellbeing - Vision for County Wexford

Community Wellbeing

What do we need for the wellbeing of the community of County Wexford? That is the question being posed by Wexford PPN (Public Participation Network), and they want to hear from all the groups and organisations across Wexford. Developing a Vision for Community Wellbeing means thinking about what we have and what we need to help County Wexford to be as great as it can be for us and for the many generations that follow on from ours.

Wexford PPN is hosting a series of five workshops across County Wexford in May to start this important conversation. This Community Vision, developed in consultation with communities on the ground, will be used to influence policy and guide the work of the PPN in working towards achieving the community’s goals.

What is Community Wellbeing

Wellbeing is an increasingly common term that can describe wider conditions than good physical and mental health, which we need as individual and communities to have a better quality of life, a healthier environment and increased prosperity. Some of these are things that we can easily measure, like the number of pre-school places, or the speed with which an ambulance can get to a sick person. Others are less easily measured, such as our pride of place, our heritage and the way in which we all look after each other. All aspects of wellbeing are connected to each other.

Under this programme Wexford PPN will look at community wellbeing under the following headings; social and community development; environment and sustainability; work, economy and resources; health; values, culture and meaning; and participation, democracy and good governance.

Getting involved

The five community consultation meetings will take place in May as outlined below. There is one in each of the current four Municipal Districts to focus on the specific municipal district. However, if communities can’t make it on the night for their Municipal District event there is a County Consultation on a Saturday morning to make sure everyone has a chance to come along. Book a place using the links below – all of which can also be found on Wexford PPN's Facebook Page .
