This annual Study Visit is a day-long programme designed for learning, sharing and inspiration.
Neighbourhoods that Work (NTW) is amongst the first of its kind in England - a progressive pathfinder, in conjunction with the Big Lottery, focussing on ‘Whole Place’ based approaches to developing Stronger Communities.
What's happening? The Study Visit 2016 is your opportunity to meet the teams, discover insights into the practice, hear how the local connects to the global, and to visit grass-roots development projects in action!
This year it’s all about the flow – understanding the nuances, the connectivity, the variety and the differences that make the difference.
Who should come? Commissioners, Policy Makers, Stakeholders, Partners and anyone interested in the work of the community, voluntary, public and enterprise sectors.
