Building Community Capacity event 5th March

On the 5th March we will be holding a full-day event on Building Community Capacity for organisations across the Eastern region. The event has proven very popular in the region and is now fully booked and operating a waiting list.

The event in Cambridge on the 5th March will:

  • Raise awareness of the importance of building community capacity and the business case for a community-based approach
  • Share and disseminate toolkits and materials that can help organisations build community capacity
  • Explore useful methods of engaging people and communities in building community capacity
  • Support providers and commissioners to take next steps and to embed the principles in day-to-day practice.

And it will include:

  • Explanation of concepts such as social capital
  • Information about the national policy context and what this means for providers
  • Introduction to Appreciative Inquiry and other engagement methods
  • Action planning and strategy development around issues that matter to participants.

We are also planning to run a similar event in the North west later this year.
