Are you interested in discussing more about what community development is and the values and principles behind it? 


This CPD accredited course will help to strengthen Big Local areas understanding of community development including exploring the values and principles that underpins much of the work we do to ensure a strong resident led programme. We will mix this with sharing some great examples of good practice to build your confidence and help to nurture community led approaches in Big Local areas.
