Supporting communities to bring about change and shape their neighbourhoods
We are experts in community engagement. We work with and support communities so that they have a real say in what happens in their neighbourhoods.
We provide training and project delivery support so that communities can use Planning for Real® and our other techniques to develop and run programmes of community-led engagement. The ethos underpinning all our methods is that they are highly visual, tactile, participatory and community-led.
With an unrivalled 25 year track record we have designed and facilitated community engagement programmes on diverse scales and issues.
