Discussion on our original group
- and other conversations I've had - suggests there is strong interest in making the most of the various national programmes to support local communities, through great collaboration. I've listed the main national ones here
- Community Voices (Media Trust); DC10plus; Local 2.0 (Young Foundation); RSA Connected Communities; Talk About Local; Timely Information to Citizens; IDeA/local authorities - and will add more.
It looks as if the Department for Communities and Local Government - which funds several of the programmes - may well help in convening workshops. More news soon, I hope. Meanwhile, do drop a comment to confirm any previous, or new interest.
