Host a conversation
From the project research team at IVAR
We are interested in hearing from anyone that works with communities. Whether you’re a local group with half an hour at a coffee morning, a youth group with a passion for making a difference or an organisation delivering health checks in a community centre. Whoever you are, whatever group or organisation you are part of, we would like to hear your ideas about how communities can become empowered.
We’ve created some resources to help you host a conversation about the research in existing meetings, from your upcoming AGM to lunch with a few friends. All contributions will form an important part of our research, so please do get involved.
The research team would be happy to talk about your event and answer any questions you might have. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the resource pack you’ll find some things to help shape your conversations, and to help feed back to us what you’ve been talking about:
- Three different ideas for activities to get the conversation started... and keep it going!
- A set of questions to help with discussions
- Some advice on photo consent – in case you want to send us pictures or post some on social media
- A print-able ‘conversation catcher’ sheet for capturing what people are saying (we’ve provided it in colour and in black and white)
- A ‘Key Points’ template for you to fill in online and email back to us – or print out and stick in the post.
