Building Community Power in Amber Valley

Connecting Amber Valley

In Amber Valley we’re seeking out and stitching together social innovators leading grass roots action to create a thriving network of people with a ‘can-do’ mind set.

Our ambition is to reveal the value of this powerful community network, integrating citizen led action with the wider health and care system to make best use of resources and improve population health and wellbeing.


How can I get involved?

We distribute a fortnightly newsletter filled with community stories from across Amber Valley and visit communities to engage with, listen to and connect local leaders from across the district. Find out more about these using the buttons below.
