OUR COMMUNITIES WELLBEING
"Community is the fruit of our capacity to make the interests of others more important than our own. The question, therefore, is not ‘How can we make community?’ but, ‘How can we develop and nurture giving hearts?’"
Communities are proving the world over they have the power to create sustainable recovery and growth.
At eCulture Solutions we foster increased engagement and collaboration between with community innovators and entrepreneurs and public sector. Supporting the coming together on the development of models to better facilitate co-design / production, and continuous improvement in sustainable wellbeing development systems and services, and measurable social, economic, and ecological progress in delivery.
This is achieved by
Networking - Connecting like-minded individuals and organisations with similar social and ecological ambitions to one another. Through our intelligence we reach and create bridges between unconnected spaces, places, and people.
Convening and co-design - A social economy cannot come to fruition by VCSE-activity alone. Citizens, local businesses, academia, public sector, and more all need to be involved in the weaving of social change and regenerative local economics. Our convening capability delivers new connections, increased peer-to-peer learning, new collaborations, and innovations with new ways to realise social value and benefits.
Brokering - The liaising power that aims to increase the public and private spending into local social economy capacity. This includes facilitating creation of new more effective / efficient and sustainable service structures e.g., carers cooperatives, food cooperatives, etc. and community wealth building opportunity.
Best practice blueprints – engaging aid to support community start-ups to accelerate progress to a sustainable and mature state of service capability through provision of a library of common tools, business support services and blueprint delivery approaches / models, utilising best practice guidance / support built from experience of specialists from across the commercial, public and not for profit sectors.
