Tipperary Public Participation Network

What do you want your community to look like in 10 years?

Tipperary Public Participation Network (Tipperary PPN) are delighted to be rolling out a new National Initiative on Community well-being. The PPN is bringing together social inclusion, environment and community development voices in our communities to develop a “Well-being Vision Statement” that sets out their shared vision for County Tipperary.

What is Community Wellbeing?

Well-being is an increasingly common term that can describe wider conditions than just good physical and mental health, which we need as individuals and communities in order to have a better quality of life, a healthier environment and increased prosperity.

Some of these are things that we can easily measure e.g. the number of pre-school places, or the speed with which an ambulance can get to a sick person. Others are less easily measured, e.g. our pride of place, our heritage and the way in which we all look after each other.

All aspects of well-being are connected to each other. So, for example, if our natural environment is poor, it will affect our mental and physical health as well as our economy. In other words, all the parts of our community well-being are interconnected.

Let’s develop our vision for community well-being for the Cashel / Tipperary Municipal District.

So, what do we need for the well being of the community of Cashel / Tipperary?

That is the question being posed by Tipperary PPN, and we want to hear from all the groups and organisations in this area. Feed into this important vision for your area by starting a conversation and attending a public meeting on Wednesday, May 29th, 2019, in Kilfeacle Community Centre, Moatquarter, Kilfeacle, Co. Tipperary.

Location: Kilfeacle Community Tennis Club. E34 YP98

Developing a Vision for Community well-being means thinking about what we have and what we need to help Cashel / Tipperary Municipal District to be as great as it can be, for us and for the many generations that will follow into the future.

All the information gathered on the above stated night, will be brought together and used to influence policy, thus guiding the work of the PPN and its representatives; in influencing policy and working towards achieving community goals.

On the night Tipperary PPN will look at community well-being under six headings as follows.

Social and community development.
Environment and sustainability.
Economy and resources.
Health (physical & mental).
Values, culture and meaning.
Participation, democracy and good governance.

By using the above six headings across all the country, we can see whether we resident in Tipperary have the same concerns and indeed causes for celebration, as do others.
