Sub groups

The Partnership has several sub groups which consist of representatives of the Partnership and members of external bodies and agancies. They all aim to improve the local community in their own specific area of expertise and prove a valueable part in steering current projects and the development of new ones. The Partnerships sub groups are as follows:

Health
The Health sub group meets on a monthly basis to discuss progress of projects dealing with health issues (Health Ambassadors, Sports Development & Romero), shortages in provisions in the area which the Partnership could fill and other general health related issues effecting the area. The group works closely with agancies such as Barnsley PCT, Age Concern and BMBC.

Environment
The Environment sub group meets on a monthly basis to discuss progress of projects dealing with environmental issues (Community Pride), environmental eyesores which the Partnership could improve and other general environmental related issues effecting the area. The group works closely with agencies such as Berneslai Homes, BMBC and local churches and is also taking a lead role on steering the work of Groundwork Dearne Valley now they have moved into the area.

Lifelong Learning
The Lifelong Learning sub group meets on a monthly basis to discuss progress of projects dealing with learning (NLN, Study Support & Romero), shortages in provisions in the area which the Partnership could fill and other Learning issues effecting the area. The group works closely with organisations such as Athersley Cares, The Roundhouse Lifelong Learning Centre, Sure Start and local schools.
