Working with you
There are number of different ways we can work with you to help you achieve your outcomes.
Although our work is based around a core set of products, our innovative nature means that every project is slightly different, tailoring the solution to the specific needs of the people and organisations we’re working with.
As an outline there are three main ways we work with organisations:
1. Delivering the work for you
If you need someone to come and train your community in Community Reporting, run a consultation, report at an event or deliver some bespoke training then you can commission us to create, deliver and evaluate a piece of work that fits your needs.
2. Working with you to deliver
We are passionately committed to embedding skills within communities or organisations to grow the network of Community Reporters - and increase the range and profile of content produced by reporters.
One way we are doing this is to offer the Community Reporter programme under social licence. The licence incorporates a Train the Trainer programme for staff or volunteers, meaning that the skills and knowledge stay within your organisation or community. What's more, part of the licence package includes support in how to develop Community Reporting as an income generating activity.
3. Showing you how to do it
We have over sixteen years experience of working in communities and have a wealth of knowledge, skills and competencies around community engagement, community development and organisational development.
We can offer consultancy to work with staff or service users across a range of different areas, including setting up social media centres in new or existing IT suites, developing communication hubs within communities or using social media for community engagement.
We also appreciate that the best solutions come sometimes when organisations pool their skills and knowledge, and we are therefore open to developing joint enterprises where the skill set will bring about exciting opportunities for communities.
