Testing emerging themes with a local community

From the project research team at IVAR

At the end of last year the Empowered Communities in the 2020s research team held an event in Southampton, hosted by TWICS. The idea was to take emerging themes bubbling up from the research so far and test them in a locality with people with an interest in local community work/action – this included local residents, voluntary and community groups and staff from the local authority and NHS.

These slides try to capture a flavour of discussions and key points raised as a record for participants and also to feed into the next stage of the research.
