The Together Team - East Bridgwater is a multi-agency partnership working to help build a stronger sense of community across Sydenham, Dunwear and Bower. We do this through two strands of work: case management and community development. The team's aim is to act as a 'one-stop shop' of support.
We adopt an outreach approach to meet the needs of individuals and families working with residents to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and financial hardship whilst improving quality of life, access to work opportunities, volunteering and training.
Partners meet on a weekly basis with the Together Team Coordinator to discuss current cases and bring together knowledge and resources to best support residents and resolve problems or complaints in the area. This is the case management element of the team's work. Residents living within the area will still maintain contact with individual organisations and these organisations will be working 'Together' behind the scenes. Residents can get in touch with the Together Team directly to self-refer and ask for support and help or to raise concerns about a problem or issue within the area.
The Together Team also seeks to encourage resident involvement and to help make the local area an attractive, welcoming and accessible place. The team organise events and activities for residents to attend, learn new skills and join together as a community. We also produce a six monthly newsletter delivered to all residents. A downloadable copy is available at the bottom of this page. This is part of the community development element of the team's work.
