The network meetings take place on a quarterly basis in each of the 6 towns in Sandwell (Oldbury, Rowley Regis, Smethwick, Tipton, Wednesbury and West Bromwich).
The aim of the network provides an opportunity to link all organisations with an interest in delivering or facilitating weight management in Sandwell.
Locality network groups have been set up in each town in Sandwell, attended by a range of key agencies, service providers and organisations. The network provides a platform for sharing and local learning regarding ‘what works’. We share information at town-level and provide updates on obesity data for children and adults, and gaps in services.
The network meeting also provides partners and organisations with information about new developments, as well as opportunities for partnership working and funding.
We would like to include local residents in our groups so that they can share their experiences and views about local services and proposed plans.
