Making Community Participation Meaningful: A Handbook for Development and Assessment

Synopsis

This handbook is a companion volume to What works in assessing community participation? (The Policy Press, 2004) which documents the results of the road testing of two earlier frameworks for assessing community participation - Benchmarking community involvement in regeneration (Yorkshire Forward, 2000) and Auditing community participation: An assessment handbook (The Policy Press, 2000).Making community participation meaningful outlines key considerations that are necessary to ensure that community participation is effective; provides detailed sets of questions to enable stakeholders to assess the extent to which the indicators of success are being met; highlights a variety of resources which can be used by community groups to generate information and insight into the key issues and offers the real prospect of a commonly accepted assessment framework which has the authority to be adopted across sectors.

Excerpt

This section asks you to answer a series of questions in as much detail as possible. Answers to reflective questions provide the evidence of where you are. By reflection we mean that you have had a chance to think about the issues and to discuss them with others. You should test out your views and those of others with probing questions to see how robust they are. You should record both agreements and disagreements about where you are as an institution or as a group.
