Our Priorities

What are the 4 main priorities of our Inspiring Communities programme?

We have listened to our residents and partners to identify four key priorities to focus our activities within the Inspiring Communities programme, those priorities are:

Domestic Abuse County Lines Social Isolation and Loneliness Mental Health

Breckland Council plays a key role in identifying people who need help and providing interventions in order to improve their health and wellbeing.

We provide core local services, including community safety, economic development, planning, housing, leisure, wellbeing and environmental services for local communities - areas that are increasingly recognised as vital components of population health systems.

Inspiring Communities is about collaboration with key stakeholders to develop a community-led approach to enhancing the lives of Breckland residents. It sets a clear tone that Breckland Council are here to collectively lead, enable and support a District-wide approach to the improved health and wellbeing of our residents.
