Community consultation is the process of getting people involved in decision-making and community activities. It is all about empowering our stakeholders to play an active role, which typically facilitates better decisions, more support, higher satisfaction with outcomes and a sense of community ownership.
This course explores various types of community consultation as well as specific skills and approaches for doing it effectively. We explore the key principles underpinning effective, authentic and inclusive consultation, along with risks and pitfalls to avoid.
