Many people in communities find it difficult to attend meetings and to get up and speak. It is often too daunting. So meetings usually attract the same vocal element. Community engagement must mean reaching those voices unheard and finding the means to give those voices a chance to be heard.
One way of giving people a voice is through digital stories. By getting people to talk about their experiences and their hopes on audio and video in short stories is one way of getting their message across. This has been used to give a voice to many vulnerable and marginalised groups and has been used for example with the travellers and migrant communities.We are now using it with the young unemployed and also residents of housing associations.
This webinar will be presented by Maxine Moar and Francis Sealey who have been working on developing digital stories as an effective means of communication - stories that will be listened to by decision makers and service providers.
Maxine has been a National Delivery Manager for the Home Office, managing police teams and partners to develop and sustain neighbourhood agreements as well as develop initiatives and build strong communities. A key figure in building local and national Community Cohesion polices for over 10 years. she rose to prominence during and after the riots in Oldham and other northern cities and towns in 2001 and has been an adviser to the Home Office under both the Labour and Coalition Governments.
Steve Milton will also be joining us from Wiltshire County Council where their neighbourhood initiative "Wiltshire Voices" brings us the views of people who either do not or cannot participate in civic life.
