Powerful Communities: Community Engagement
Leicester Business Box (b-inspired), Leicester
Wednesday 14 Mar 18 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Powerful Communities events are joint events for the My Community network, Locality Members and other special interest groups. They are a great opportunity to meet other community groups, learn, share ideas and find out what works.
Community engagement is essential to understanding what the local community needs and what strengths the local community has in order to address that need. It is also invaluable in helping you to design the best way to plan and deliver projects, giving local people easy access and opportunities to get involved in delivering the project.
You will hear about B-Inspired’s story of community cohesion and how they put the community at the heart of all their services, and about Locality’s Future Places work on putting communities in control and bringing places together.
You will then be able to attend the following workshops:
- Community Organisers – Naomi Diamond, COLtd
- “Proving” engagement for a project – Neil Hodgkin, Saffron Lane
- Youth Engagement – John Houghton, Locality (former Community Empowerment and Third Sector Team Leader at DCLG)
