Meet Your Community Development Worker
My name is Wendy Blunt and I am Chesterfield Borough Council’s Community Development Worker.
Community Development is a key part of the Community Assemblies programme in Chesterfield Borough. There are four Community Assembly areas in Chesterfield Borough. Anyone who lives or works in each area is encouraged to get involved. You can choose the level of involvement that works for you whether that is via social media, attending meetings, getting involved in community events or volunteering with local community groups.
The assemblies are a chance to discuss and share what matters to you, to help shape the future of your area and to get involved in a range of community events and activities.
My role is to:
· Help support the development of community assemblies and associated
activities in your area
· To help you to identify the issues that matter to you and your
community and to work with you to deliver on local area priorities.
· Ensure that local groups delivering valuable community activity are
supported with help and advice including access to information, research,
promotional activities, advice on funding bids etc.
· Strengthen community engagement in your area and to encourage a
more diverse range of people to engage with the Council and partner
You can contact me in any of the following ways for a chat or to arrange an appointment to discuss things in more detail:-
