Act Locally: Holme Wood

In HOlme wood, the convening partnership have prioritised helping children and young people vulnerable to crime and antisocial behaviour

The Holme Wood convening partnership for Act Locally was created from our first meeting in October 2023. Schools, local policy makers, university researchers,  frontline professionals and residents came together to agree a priority for the Holme Wood area - children and young people vulnerable to crime and antisocial behaviour. This provided a mandate for change from the community, which empowered members of the partnership to speak as one to local commissioners and decision makers, and to seek resources, permissions and support for change. You can read our statement of intent following from this session below. 



Our Collective Impact

The Act Locally programme in Holme Wood uses a collective impact framework. Collective impact is when individuals from different organisations come together around a common agenda to solve a specific societal problem, leaving their organisational priorities at the door. It is based on the philosophy that that large scale social change comes from cross-sector coordination rather than the isolated intervention of individual organisations. Using a collective impact framework will enable long term system change by empowering local people to act on the issues affecting their community through mutually reinforcing activities coordinated through constant communication.
