The Talk Community programme will contribute substantially to the council’s new County Plan and in particular its community ambition. It will drive significant change through contributing to the cross cutting themes in the Plan of sustainability, connectivity and wellbeing. Talk Community will also harness the ambition and commitment of public sector partner organisations across the whole system.
