COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT – STRATEGIC CONSULTATION
Avondhu Blackwater Partnership CLG is currently undertaking a comprehensive Community Audit and consultation process, carried out through a variety of media, which seeks your input to inform the future direction of local implementation of the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) 2018 – 2022

SICAP is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development with co-funding from the European Social Fund (ESF) as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.

SICAP provides funding to strengthen communities and improve people’s lives, to tackle poverty and address social exclusion at a local level through partnerships between community organisations, individuals and public sector agencies. Social inclusion works for a fairer future that benefits everyone. This consultation process is an investigation of community issues with a social inclusion, community engagement remit towards strengthening communities and promoting equality.

The data collection process of this comprehensive community audit will not only gather statistical data of areas needs and issue based needs to support decisions around prioritisation of actions, but it will also be undertaken in association with community/group members who are experiencing under representation and marginalisation as well as with representatives of community, voluntary and statutory groupings and communities. The data gathered from your group will be used in the overall analyse of the collective needs / issues of communities in the Avondhu Blackwater area. By signing the end of the completed survey you will be giving Avondhu Blackwater Partnership CLG consent to do this. We will not share this data with a third party.

This audit will also include consultation, collaboration and future planning with relevant agencies and stakeholders thus ensuring that recommendations and actions identified are in line with capacity to deliver.

The resulting analysis of this audit will inform actions for the life time of the 2018-2022 SICAP plan, essentially providing a broad menu of prioritised actions as well as identified bespoke and agreed measurable outcomes for each group supported.

The process of engaging in this community audit through on the ground, hands-on community development engagement and facilitation of groups and issues, will in itself develop capacity, foster trust, produce momentum, support inclusion and influence decision making and inclusion in networks and decision making structures.

In effect, this community development approach will promote and support active and constructive engagement between Avondhu Blackwater Partnership and the communities within our remit, and will deliver a community based enactment of public policy at a local level. Based on the results of this audit, the needs outlined will be prioritised and an action plan devised.
