New guide gives neighbourhoods the “know-how”
Earlier this month, I helped to launch a new website and Know How Guide to help people across the city run neighbourhood forums.
The guide and website were developed by Birmingham-based think tank The Chamberlain Forum and are designed to help residents get more involved in shaping the decisions that affect their communities.
The Know How Guide for Neighbourhood Forums in Birmingham offers advice on a variety of topics from legal and financial matters to making the most of meetings and working with community volunteers. There are also tips on how to access funding. You can find a copy of the guide, together with information, ideas and support by logging on to www.theneighbourhood.info.
