North Yorkshire Wider Partnership Conference at the Pavillions in Harrogate on the 26th October 2018

County Council Chair Councillor Robert Windass presented 'the awards for voluntary work by individuals and organisations that work hard to make their neighbourhoods better places to live. These volunteers also help the council to deliver critical services, such as providing social networks that reduce isolation and loneliness and enable people to live independently and for longer.' Anne-Marie Swires and Bernadette Bennison attended the conference and exhibited in the exhibition hall, introducing their new 'Empowerment Alliance', which they formed in 2018 in order to help prevent isolation and loneliness within the community. The Empowerment Alliance offers people an opportunity to join small, informal and friendly group meetings, in order to discuss any issues that they may be experiencing, to share information and to befriend. This is a really great opportunity for people to get together in order to learn, share and hopefully enjoy spending time together in a warm, friendly and safe environment.

Please visit the North Yorkshire County Council web site for further information and to learn more about healthcare services that are available within the North Yorkshire Community;
