Wyre Together was launched in June 2010 and now has over 170 group members. It is free to join and members are able to share information and work together on the priorities for Wyre.  Wyre Together has a steering group who meet every 3 months to confirm the priorities for the partnership and we also have a number of task groups to work on the agreed actions.

 

 

Current Priorities:-

Promoting the work of Wyre voluntary, community and faith sector groups

Promoting and raising the awareness of volunteering
