Any organisation transitioning to a more community-driven, place-based way of working that is facing the challenges of transitioning from classical deficit thinking, top-down/hierarchical practice or traditional structures will find our consultancy services of genuine and practical support. Organisations committed to forging collaborative and respectful relationship with communities but who recognise they have a tendency (as does every organization) to revert to ‘deficit approaches’ will also benefit.
We work with businesses, health authorities, local authorities, civil service departments, police departments, fire services, social services, voluntary, community and faith sector organisations, as well as directly with communities to support their change process. We also work at State, Federal and National levels of Government.
