Supporting communities to be self-sufficient

Resilient communities are self-sufficient and have the resources and capabilities to meet their collective needs and flourish. They are safe, sustainable and interdependent on each other; supporting vulnerable children and adults to remain in their communities for longer and realise their goals. Early local intervention focused on maximising independence is central to achieving this. Public services in the future will need to come together to focus their expertise and resources, work with the Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise Sector; enabling and supporting more people to volunteer and play an active role in their communities, and to improve lives. This will reduce the current unsustainable levels of demand and expenditure on the state.
