Event description

Description

Our communities and the services that operate within them thrive when they are inclusive and where they respect, value and support the rich diversity of people who live and work there. It can be difficult to reach out and engage with groups who are traditionally excluded, whether that be due to geography, age, gender, disability, race, religion and belief, sexual orientation, transgender identity, caring responsibility or anything else.

The National Standards for Community Engagement provide an excellent framework to help you ensure that you are reaching out to all members of your community. This training will give you more awareness of the National Standards and will also give you a greater understanding of:

• Diversity in the community
• Barriers that make some people ‘harder to reach’ and how to overcome them
• Equality Law and what it means for your organisation
• Practical tools which can help you rethink how you involve all people in community activities, projects and decision making (National Standards for Community Engagement)
• The pitfalls, benefits and possibilities of working in partnership with communities
