Vibrant Communities

In 2018 the Social Development Council of Cornwall and Area (SDC) embarked on a collective impact initiative called Vibrant Communities. They engaged policy makers, health-care workers, non-profit professionals, business owners, people with lived experience and many more from across SDGCA. The objective was to assess the greatest risks and find the biggest issues local communities are facing. The goal was to then take action collectively and address those largest societal issues, the pillars, with a strong focus on prevention.
