We support institutions to work differently with their communities.
We build bridges between government and the communities they seek to serve, so that public sector decision-making is built on community engagement.
The Covid-19 crisis has given rise to hundreds of mutual aid groups and grassroots social initiatives. It’s shown that communities understand local people’s needs, and how to help.
For communities to flourish in the coming years, policy makers need to partner with them, listen and respond.
We’re experts in building relationships like these. We know how to put the voices of communities at the heart of local and national decision making, and create strong ongoing partnerships.
Our team can help you develop strategy, engage communities, build networks, change perceptions and evaluate programmes.
We’ve worked with the Mayor of London to get local people involved in evaluating policies and funding for key areas such as transport and policing.
And we’re working with charities and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) to engage the public in international development and promote empowering stories about the people it helps.
