This Webinar will focus on the culture change necessary within agencies to facilitate active and self-reliant communities. It will look at the work of Wolverhampton City Council in preparing their staff to work with communities in a step by step approach to achieve self-reliance

Their approach has focused in its first stages on developing training packages for employees who are on the front line with communities to ensure that where communities come up with an idea to be active in their communities - eg to take over a piece of land, develop a food bank etc – thatcouncil staff have a ‘can do’ approach within agencies that helps them to do this They have also developed an employee volunteering policy within the City Council to enable communities to be supported directly in the delivery of their priorities

This Webinar will be presented by Sheila Collett who manages the Wolverhampton Local Neighbourhood Partnerships (LNPs) that provides the means for local communities throughout Wolverhampton to work with service providers and commissioners in shaping the design, planning and delivery of public services.
