Wellbeing Team

Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham

The Wellbeing Network brings together third-sector organisations (local, regional and national) operating in Flintshire and Wrexham who have an interest in health, social care, and well-being. The Network is also open to statutory partners and is free to join.

This collaborative network in North East Wales is jointly managed by AVOW and FLVC. It offers professionals in both the Third and Statutory sectors across the counties an opportunity to meet face-to-face. The main goal is to share updates on projects and news from different organisations and foster connections among peers. We hold quarterly meetings.

The aims of the network are to:

1. Bring together third sector organisations to present a collective voice.
2. Motivate, inspire, include, and build trust among third sector organisations.
3. Share information and good practice ideas with other third sector organisations.
4. Influence the development of health, social care, and wellbeing activities and services in North East Wales.
5. Ensure the third sector is an equal partner in the delivery of integrated health, social care, and wellbeing activities and services in North East Wales.

If you would like to present your service or project at a network event, please contact: [email protected].

The Wellbeing team in FLVC and AVOW supports the third sector and statutory partners in a number of ways:


  • Promoting third sector organisations, services and activities to statutory partners
