Building social connectedness

Community-led activities build social connections. This case study summarises events that encouraged neighbourliness through community based activities. It describes the ways in which a recovery agency can support community-led recovery activities, without ‘taking over’.

You can’t control community led recovery, but you can create the conditions for it to grow.
