How can your organisation lead meaningful change in your neighbourhood? In this interactive workshop you will go beyond the theory. Hear practical examples from community organisations that have successfully unlocked potential in their communities to solve their own challenges.

Share which approaches to supporting community led action would work best in your area and how we can make local changes to achieve impact and then build on the existing strengths of our communities. You will come away with simple methods and ideas that will help you innovate in your work.
