Participation Event August 2022
Participation Practice Exchange: Keep The Promise by bringing participation to life
In August 2022, we were delighted to host a hybrid in-person or online Participation Network event.
This session saw us share great participatory practice and projects, with different organisations having the opportunity to take us on their journey of planning, partnership working, engagement, delivery and impact.
Attendees saw presentations from the National Leadership Network, the Inside Out project, Our Hearings, Our Voice, and the Rights Right Now project who spoke about how they are working to Keep The Promise.
Afterwards, participants worked in groups to discuss :
- Visioning and scoping participation
- Partnership working
- Engaging with diverse communities
- Delivering your participation project
- Ensuring impact for participants
- Ensuring strategic impact
and share their experiences, ideas and projects.
