The rhetoric of localism promises residents a much greater say in how their area is run. Whether that promise is delivered or not, the skills and resources to involve more people in local decision-making – and to listen to what they have to say – are more important than ever.
As the South West's hub for empowerment and engagement work since 2007, Creating Excellence can help you directly, and signpost you to our associates and the many organisations and individuals we know who may be able to give you exactly the answer you need.
Creating Excellence is also a reference point for funders and funding advisers of voluntary and community organisations in the South West. We initiated Funding South West, a system of networks for funders and funding advisers, as well as the newer South West Localism Group, and continue to be closely associated with them.
Every place, every problem is different. At Creating Excellence, we’ll help you find the solution that works for you. Contact:John Skrine
