OPM Community Capacity blog
OPM, an independent, employee-owned research organisation and consultancy have published a blog post which looks at how best to grow community capacity and engage communities.
How do we grow more engaged communities? How do we utilise the ideas, the skills and energy in our towns, villages and neighbourhoods in ways that make people’s lives better – and which enable our limited public finances to stretch that bit further? How do we open up different sorts of conversations and relationships between citizens and agencies, and how do we sustain those? How can councils help to surface and support the capacity around us?
It includes some interesting perspectives and is well worth a read- find the full blog post here.
