Why are empowered communities important?

At the very first workshop of the Dialogues series, we met the Empowered Communities project steering group and asked them why they think empowered communities matter. The group mentioned everything from Brexit to personal experiences of knowing neighbours — it really got us thinking! 

We’ve put our favourite answers into the video above, or you can see all the vox pops in full in this playlist

The steering group members come from a mix of national and local organisations and all have knowledge and expertise in working with communities. They are: Alice Casey, Angus McCabe, Daniel Goodwin, Debbie Burton, Fabian French, Fozia Irfan, Lorna Prescott, Paul Bragman, Dr Rachel Shanks, Richard Wilson, Sue Gill and Tony Armstrong.
