Across the UK the power of community-led local action has never been more vividly highlighted than during the covid-19 crisis. Many hundreds of community organisations have shown amazing ability to swiftly adapt and scale up responses to meet multiple layers of local need, emphatically proving them as an often ‘hidden’ but powerful resource.

The LGA describes town and parish councils as ‘the democratic bodies with the closest direct links to communities’.

During this time of post-pandemic reflection, this webinar series facilitated by C2 Connecting Communities (  offers a unique opportunity to re-think current ways of working and gain insight into ‘tried & tested’ transferable principles that will further strengthen and build on current community momentum.

Course Outline

With the focus on working in equal partnership we will hear inspirational stories of transformative community-led change ‘against the odds’. Each webinar will feature the voices of resident leaders and their agency partners outlining key success factors.

Course aims:

  • To familiarize learners with an effective strengths based approach, working in equal partnership with communities
  • To recognize and learn how to release latent strengths of communities
  • To introduce concept of Community Health Creation ie. a social model of health & well being
  • To understand transferable principles of creating conditions for communities to self organize and ‘do it for themselves’
  • To learn simple but powerful C2 theory of change based on viewing communities as complex adaptive systems
