Welcome to Well Doncaster
Our vision in Doncaster is to support people in our communities to improve their health and wellbeing.
From the very beginning Well Doncaster has been about people
The community have been involved in every aspect of our journey, telling us what will make the greatest impact on their lives
We have had hundreds of conversations over the last year which have lead to practical actions and shaped the vision for Well Doncaster which is for ‘Everyday is a good day’ – for a vibrant connected community where people have purpose, diverse friendships and high expectations for themselves and the area.
Our work is initially focused in a Denaby Main, an ex-mining area which has struggled to find its feet since the closure of the mines some 30 years ago.
We want to put Denaby on the map and create Destination Denaby - a place where people want to live, work and play – reversing the negative perception that has crept in since the mine closure.
We will achieve this through a number of key themes set out by the community:
1.Take advantage of our natural assets & green space and build community pride
2.Creating a culture of enterprise and resourcefulness
3.Enhancing our assets with a active network of people, groups, services & buildings
4.Celebrating the arts, culture and local heritage; using these to connect with people
5.Creating local leadership and supporting people who connect up their community
6.Also ensuring services are there for people when they need them
We have made a good start and are excited to see what the future holds for Doncaster, Denaby and its people.
If you’ve got a great idea that could make a difference to Denaby, please get in touch!
