Event Details

The aims of the Community Rights Made Real workshop

Urban Forum and NAVCA are running a FREE workshop, in partnership with T3SC and Voluntary Sector North West, to prepare for the practicalities, opportunities and challenges of the rights within the Localism Act.  We want to support inclusion and equality in how the new rights are taken up; focussing in particular on the needs of communities who currently lack power.

As the government introduces new community rights designed to give local people the chance to take action on local services, assets and development, we want to make sure that communities are equipped with the knowledge and skills to take advantage of these when the Localism Act comes into force in 2012.

 

The workshop will:

  • Brief people on the details of all the new community rights
  • Discuss their practical implications for communities
  • Share experience of existing community action – successes and pitfalls
  • Support community groups and community activists in planning how they will respond to the new rights
