Community Development

Across Oldham there are a wide range of resources available in our communities to help you to improve or maintain your health and wellbeing.

We believe that sometimes the best medicine is to use your community facilities and activities such as support groups, physical activity and sport. We also want to reduce isolation and loneliness by connecting people to each other, helping everyone to enjoy all the community has to offer.

Thriving Communities focuses on building on the strengths, people and groups that already exist within our communities and highlights how by using our community resources we can tackle problems earlier, rather than dealing with the symptoms later.
