Act Locally: Central Keighley 

In central Keighley, our convening partnership has prioritised tackling poor nutrition and food insecurity 

The central Keighley convening partnership for Act Locally was created at our first meeting in September 2023. Schools, local policy makers, university researchers,  frontline professionals and residents came together to agree a priority for the central Keighley area - poor nutrition and food insecurity. 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 central Keighley 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.
