Community Engagement and Empowerment
There is an increasing awareness on the part of public bodies and organisations of the need to directly involve communities in the creation of local services and strategies. Consequently this training session would be of interest to all those seeking to develop partnerships and working relationships with community groups and residents.

• Why involve communities?
• Approaches that encourage inclusive participation.
• Effective methods of engagement
• Developing community expertise.
• Creating empowered communities.
• Community empowerment and effective partnerships.
The learning will be interactive with many opportunities for discussion. If you have a suitable venue and a minimum of 6 interested participants then the session can come to you either as a half or full day event.
