About the Trainer

Andrew Maliphant was the part-time parish clerk at Longhope, Gloucestershire for 8 years from 2012 to 2020.

He now carries out consultancy work for LCC Associates under the banner of The Community Works, along with working as the SLCC’s Environmental and Sustainability Advisor.

Andrew has worked in the public, private and voluntary sectors, and has over twenty-five years’ experience in regeneration programme and project management, in both rural and urban areas. He has successfully led teams in community-based regeneration in market towns, city centre and the urban fringe, in all of which he developed and delivered partnership projects with community groups and outside organisations.

Andrew describes what he does as “Helping People to Help Themselves”, with particular reference to improving the place where they live or work. He is currently working with NALC and other organisations and networks to gather good practice in response to the impact of climate change.

Since publishing his Local Regeneration Handbook (Sage Publications October 2017 – available from the SLCC bookshop) Andrew has continued to share and develop good practice through networking, published articles and training courses. He is very happy to talk to any parish, town or community council – or other local group – about their plans and concerns for the future.
