Join us as we explore a range of online approaches to community engagement and consultation, supporting you to continue putting residents voices at the heart of your Big Local plan.

With social distancing measures likely to be around for some time, there is a need for creative approaches to continue to effectively engage with your local community.

Whilst using digital platforms may not be able to replace face-to-face methods, they have the potential to reach members of your community who might not have had the capacity to get involved before.

Digital tools for community engagement come in many shapes and sizes, and it’s important to consider which approach would work best in your community, and how it might be adapted to not exclude those who are offline.

This event will give you the opportunity to hear about a range of online community engagement and consultation approaches, and allow you to consider whether they would work well in engaging meaningfully with your own community.

Joining us will be:

Short presentations will be followed by time for questions and group discussions to find out more about the mechanics of each project and what other communities are working on.
