Community development and community engagement is essential to the work of voluntary and community sector organisations and public sector groups. Done well it empowers people to be active, influential, cohesive participants that strengthen civil society.
Involving communities is an area that EPITOME has extensive experience at whether that be:
Active communities - people involved in local action - volunteering, decision making, planning.
Community development - enabling people and groups to develop skills and knowledge to respond to local issues.
Community engagement - A planned process of working with a community or communities with regards to specific issues.
EPITOME will work with you to identify what you want to achieve through community participation. We can develop a plan with you, and assist you in achieving your goals.
