Around 100 people from Salisbury met last night at the Five Rivers Health & Wellbeing Centre to consider research findings to inform what the community’s priorities should be for the next 2 years.
Businesses, schools, young people, older people, community groups, charities and voluntary groups, churches, local councils, those with an interest in the environment, the local economy, sport, culture and many others all took part in lively discussion around themes which the research findings suggested are important for the Salisbury community to focus on.
The research was conducted by NHS Wiltshire, the Wiltshire Economic Partnership, Housing Partnership, Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, Wiltshire Council, the police, fire and rescue services and a number of other strategic partners.
From these discussions, the top 5 community priorities for Salisbury suggested by those 100 people attending were:
- mental health
- social isolation for older people
- healthy lifestyles and physical activities
- strengthen the local economy with improved training and skills
Please come along to the public meeting of the Salisbury Area Board on the 5th January, from 6.30pm at the City Hall to hear more about how the community, working together, will work to take forward local actions, projects and initiatives around the new priorities.
