Community planning toolkit launch

Community Places together with the Causeway Rural and Urban Network, North Antrim Community Network and Ballymoney Resource Centre would like to invite you to a local launch of the BIG Lottery Funded on-line Community Planning Toolkit.

Community Planning is now firmly back on the agenda with legislation and guidance on the new power expected in the next few weeks. Come along to find out about and discuss:

The toolkit is available at www.communityplanningtoolkit.org and is a comprehensive resource for Community Planning, a process that encourages public bodies and community organisations to work together to plan and provide better services for local people.

At the launch you will find out how the toolkit can help communities across the region build stronger relationships and gain a better understanding of the Community Planning Process which will be introduced as part of the restructuring of local councils.

The toolkit explores five key themes which are essential for effective Community Planning Practice including, Community Engagement and Working Together and highlights and directs users to useful tools, resources, case studies and podcasts. It is a valuable resource to help people and organisations understand, learn about and get involved in Community Planning to help shape services in their communities.

The launch will take place at Causeway Enterprise Agency on Tuesday 16 October at 10.30am.
