Participation Networks

These regional participation networks are suitable for anyone working in the field of participation and citizen engagement.

Attendees come from a range of different organisations in the public and third sector that focus on a variety of issues. The events are suitable for anyone from any level within an organisation that has an interest in practical participatory work, including consultation officers, trustees, volunteers, development workers and managers.

These practitioner networks are lively, participatory workshops which provide an opportunity for peers to engage, share and support each other.

They provide an invaluable opportunity to:

  • Meet other practitioners in your area
  • Share good practice
  • Share ideas
  • Problem solve
  • Develop participatory skills
  • Acquire new skills

If there is no existing network in your area we can support you to set one up. Please contact us.

Book now – May 2017

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are traumatic experiences that occur before the age of 18 and are remembered throughout adulthood. Evidence shows people who experience stressful and poor quality childhoods are more likely to develop health-harming and anti-social behaviours, more likely to perform poorly in school, more likely to be involved in crime and ultimately less likely to be a productive member of society.

Better and more meaningful engagement is needed in order to intervene early and prevent adverse childhood experiences from becoming a reality for more and more people. At these practitioner network events we will explore different methods of meaningful engagement with communities.

  • Tuesday 9th May – Bridgend
