Interlink is about getting people to work together. This includes anyone who wishes to be involved – our members, communities and partners. When people and organisations work with each other and start to produce things together, we achieve better outcomes for communities. This is because involving different people and organisations allows everyone to tap into knowledge, skills and resources of others.
We work with individuals, groups and organisations. If you would like to know more about what we do and how we do it, please call us and talk to us over the phone or we can come to speak to you and your group in your community.
We do this by:
- Supporting community and voluntary sector networks to share learning and provide mutual support. Our formal networking includes the Health, Social Care and Wellbeing Forum, the Children and Young Peoples Network, the Social Enterprise Forum and the Mental Health Forum.
- Working together to improve local services. If everyone is asked to be involved – and we tap into all the knowledge, skills and experience within communities and organisations – we can coproduce local services that make a real difference in every community in RCT.
Some more information:
- The Single Integrated Plan aims to make a difference to improve the well-being of people who live and work in RCT.
- The way we work together has been developed and agreed over time and is underpinned by The Compact. This is an agreement on how the community and voluntary groups and social enterprises (the Third Sector) work with Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council and Cwm Taff Local Health Board. The Compact includes Codes of Practice for Volunteering, Participation and Funding.
- There is lots of useful information on working together on the Commission Accomplished website.
