Leading Wellbeing in Rural Contexts – ONE DAY CONFERENCE

Organised jointly by the Brathay Trust and University of Cumbria

1 November 2016, University of Cumbria, Ambleside campus

Supporting wellbeing in an environment where providers (public, private, third sector, individuals and volunteers) are more professionally isolated requires different ways of working.

This one-day conference turns the spotlight onto the unique challenges presented, as well as providing a forum for exploring responses and opportunities. The conference showcases good practice case studies from cross-sector contexts, including health and social care, uniform services, education and enterprise to name a few.

A framework developed by the Cumbria Rural Health Forum will help us explore diverse practices, in order to draw out generalizable responses and learning for common challenges in rural contexts. These include access, community engagement and resource mobilisation. This will lead to Open Space discussions to ensure critical themes provide important learning to take away for wider sharing and application. This process contributes to an emerging rural cross-sector forum for ongoing networking, resources and communication.
