Getting your Voice heard in Community Planning

Do you ever wonder

  • What terms like Community Planning, Community Engagement or Community Empowerment mean for you as a Third Sector organisation?
  • How to influence decision making, including the development of local plans and strategies for the benefit of your service users?
  • What Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway can do to support you to have your voice (and those of your clients) heard at a strategic level?

You can increase your knowledge and influence the future by taking part in our free training and focus group events, as well as by filling in our online survey.

Each course is split into two sections, Training and Consultations. 

Training takes place from 10am – 12pm and consultation takes place from 12.30pm – 2.30pm. Lunch is provided to those who are staying for both.
