Webinar on Public Health Practice

1 February 2023

Community Resilience in Wales

 Being resilient describes the ability of an individual, a community, or a system to withstand stress and challenges and to adapt and survive adverse circumstances. (Davies et al, 2019)

At this webinar we will hear from Nick Selwyn and Euros Lake from Audit Wales who will present how, against a likely backdrop of further reductions in public spending, local authorities are being challenged to help people who are struggling with increased costs. They will share how community resilience and self-reliance can be encouraged to equip people to be less reliant on local authorities and reduce the demand on often over stretched services.

Lucia Homolova and Charlotte Grey from Public Health Wales will present findings from a study exploring community-led action during the pandemic in Wales. They will provide an overview of key factors that enabled community-led action, the extent to which community-led action contributed to the pandemic response and its impact on mitigating or reducing health inequalities.

We will also hear from Fred Weston from Monmouthshire County Council who will share how they supported individuals and groups to tackle loneliness and isolation during the pandemic.
