Integrated Neighbourhood Working update

Earlier this year, we kick started our Integrated Neighbourhood Working programme in Arnold, Cotgrave, Eastwood and Hucknall.

Successful Integrated Neighbourhood Working (INW) happens when local councils, health and social care, community groups and voluntary sector organisations work together with communities to find ways to improve the health and wellbeing of local people.

We have now held events in three of four Integrated Neighbourhood areas – Arnold, Cotgrave and Eastwood. Hucknall is building on work already started and a history of close partnership working in the town.

All four neighbourhoods have identified key stakeholders and Local Design Team are currently being established.

With these developments key themes are emerging. For example, in Eastwood, priorities focus on children and young people, improving access to information and leisure facilities. While in Cotgrave, key areas are childhood obesity and anti-social behaviour. 

It’s a great start to this work and we’ll be updating on the developments in each area early in the New Year. If you’re interested in finding out more, please email:
