Learning and Development Offer

Rapid Participatory Review

We have walked alongside a diverse selection of organisations as they learn and grow their community building initiatives. Each journey has been different, but laced with similar dilemmas. Nurture Development have developed a strategic framework to support both newly founded initiatives and to offer sense checks to those further along on in their journey. This rapid participatory review is an opportunity to create a baseline assessment or even refresh your community building initiative.

Following a review of current engagement strategies and practice, we offer our team-wide expertise to make strong recommendations that will enhance communities relations and support more community driven efforts.

What does it look like?

As we often say, “the knowledge is in the room”, and a strategic review is no different. Over the course of 5 days, we’ll spend time in conversation with citizens, practitioners and leaders; understanding a baseline, discovering what is going well, where your dilemmas are and finally where you aspire to be in the future.

We ask the host of the review to organise a series of 1 to 1 and group conversations which reflect the diversity of your initiative. The Nurture Development team will be on hand prior to the review to support this process. We acknowledge that each context is different and no strategic review will look the same, we do however strive for inclusion of all voices in the conversation.

What will this offer enable us to do?

Your organisation will have a clear understanding of what changes can be made to further enhance your community building efforts. A written report will be produced, framed around the following themes;

Strategy – moving your organisation from what’s wrong to what’s strong.
Implementation – deepening community building practice.
Legacy – building a lasting change.
