Our Themes

In early 2020 HAVA Board completed a Community Profile based on the most up-to-date data available to them.

 

Using evidence collated in the Community Profile the Board have identified areas where HAVA can make a positive impact in it's community. Initally six themese were identified through the evidence collected.   We noticed the six themes naturally fit in to four key areas:

 

Health & Wellbeing

Education & Employment

Crime

Community Building

These themes and the evidence for them was submitted to Big Local in September 2020 for approval. This was given at the end of September and we began our new plan on the 1st October 2020.
