About the Trainer
Andrew has been the part-time parish clerk at Longhope, Gloucestershire since September 2012, and also carries out consultancy work under the banner of The Community Works. He 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. 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. His people skills and varied work experience make him very comfortable working with new groups and individuals, and 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.
