What is the Forum?
The Whitchurch Multi Agency Forum consists of representatives from community organisations, locally-run third sector agencies and service providers, local residents and professional officers.

What are the aims?
The aim is to enable groups and residents of Whitchurch and the surrounding area to engage with service providers and partners working locally, by providing representation from the group at other Whitchurch Group Meetings, including the Whitchurch Families’ Network and the Whitchurch Commmunity Groups’ Meetings.

Providing support…
The members meet to exchange ideas, network and provide local support across the agencies in order to benefit and assist local Community groups to achieve their full potential. They also strive to provide a focus for local groups to be able to vocalise their concerns, aspirations and actions, and provide a stronger collective voice of the community.
