Our community researchers ran a Conversation Corner at the recent Summer of Wellbeing Festival, giving members of our community a chance to share their views and express their opinions about the Centre services.
So many lively and engaging conversations took place as we talked together to explore and analyse questions about the days and times of access that suit local people and families. We also learned more about the ways people receive and share information with each other on events and activities happening at the Centre.
Community research at Bromley by Bow Centre means working together with local residents, to design, explore and analyse research questions together on issues related to health and happiness. This helps the co-production of Centre services and develops understanding about how to build capacity in the community through local groups and networks.
Our feedback tree attracted many comments which we are now carefully analysing:-
65 people commented on what they enjoyed about the festival. These included; meeting people, seeing the community coming together, the family-friendliness and the variety of activities on offer. There were many positive comments, as well as suggestions for improvements. One resident stated, “The Centre is a wonderful place. It makes me feel loved and supported”
43 people commented on ideas they had for the future activities and services with suggestions for widening out access. Many people expressed interest in becoming involved in helping to develop future services and activities they need.
