Changing Communities – Local Agreements (webinar)

Event run in association with GlobalNet
Event run in association with GlobalNet

This is the second of two webinars being run with GlobalNet21 in May that address community and change. This webinar will look at local compacts or neighbourhood agreements where a community comes together with stakeholders to agree a common agenda for change.

What is a neighbourhood agreement?

A neighbourhood agreement is a ‘deal’ between ‘stakeholders’ in a defined neighbourhood in which each party makes commitments about how they will help improve the area. Usually this means an agreement between local residents and providers of local services and amenities. Such agreements have been used by housing providers, police forces and local authorities and with varying results.

This webinar provides an opportunity to discuss neighbourhood agreements and their value as:

  • a method of highlighting minimum standards and base line services
  • a way of working with the community to agree on their roles and responsibilities in the community
  • a method of empowering the community to be able to monitor and oversee local services
  • a way for a community to empower itself through partnership working.
