Building Strong Communities

Trafford Partnership’s Strong Communities Board has published a comprehensive strategy for Building Strong Communities in Trafford, highlighting the importance of the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector and the changing role of businesses, public services and residents. It brings together key themes underpinning national and local agendas, including devolution, early help, shaping demand and locality working, into a coordinated vision for effective partnership working. This will be achieved through mutually beneficial relationships between organisations, across sectors and with residents and communities, which will drive innovation, collaboration and meaningful co-production.
