Unlocking local capacity
Unlocking the capacity of your local communities can help your council to embrace innovation and steer it through future changes. You can enhance and sustain service delivery capabilities by tapping in to local talent and boosting volunteer support.
Across the country we are working with councils and their partners to unlock local capacity. We can help you to:
- encourage your teams to think more creatively about how they work with service users
- look at ways to make council resources available to communities
- support local groups, town and parish councils and residents to achieve more for themselves
- change the existing ‘contract’ between local authorities and residents to create realistic expectations.
Switching on the voluntary effort of local communities also means working closely with local politicians. We help you to better connect and work with your elected officials to build skills and capacity for community leadership and enlist their support for an entirely different approach to working with local communities.
