Meaningful consultation, involvement and collaboration with communities and stakeholders can be difficult to achieve, however this is crucial when trying to effectively facilitate local change for the benefit of future generations.
Our team has extensive experience in engaging with local communities. We therefore understand what works - as well as how to communicate around complex, challenging or controversial issues. We can advise on how best to consult different audiences by utilising a range of tools and tailored messaging.
