Meaningful consultation with communities and stakeholders can be difficult to achieve, however this is crucial when trying to effectively facilitate local change. 

Our team has been engaging with local communities for the last decade, so we understand what works - as well as how to communicate around complex, challenging or controversial issues.

Grasshopper has extensive experience of consulting communities on local issues, and can help advise on how best to consult different audiences by utilising a range of tools.
