Identifying a Project - Friday 19th February
A project aimed at improving your community will have a greater impact, encounter fewer obstacles and be more likely to secure funding if it has the support of the community and if they feel they have an ongoing say in how the project is run. In this workshop you will learn about how to conduct effective consultation and background research in order to identify a project that will be supported. You’ll also consider how to design a project that is participative.
