What’s the problem?

Here in Wales, we don’t always have the healthiest relationship with alcohol. Doctors and public health workers have been telling us for decades to cut back. It’s a simple message, but in our complicated lives it’s not always an easy one to follow.

What has Communities Together done differently?

Communities Together is a project about facing up to alcohol issues in our communities, but one that didn’t begin with questions about alcohol. It’s a genuine example of putting into practice the Prudent Healthcare principle of “achieving health and wellbeing...as equal partners through co-production”. Local people picked the priorities. Poetry, football, and ballroom dancing have been just some of the unexpected outcomes.

Who should come to find out more?

Anyone working in public health, community development, town planning, economic development, children and young people’s services, older people’s services, substance misuse, healthcare, social care, policing, sports development, creative arts. In short, anyone who’s interested in how communities can mobilise to improve things for themselves.
