What we do
Empowering communities to create real and lasting positive change
How we do it
We train and support people in Participatory Action Research (PAR) and community leadership skills
Why we do it
To enable people to participate in the decisions that affect their lives
Our work is based on the ideas that people are experts in their own situation, their knowledge and experience should be respected, and that they should be fully involved in decisions or developments that affect them.
We specialise in Participatory Appraisal techniques, a form of engagement that is highly interactive, using a range of visual and interactive methods that allow everyone to participate and have their say.
We have extensive experience, and a highly successful track record, of training up volunteers and residents to carry out their own community research, and of supporting them in that process.
