Objective 4:
Develop Systems to Promote Participation and Capacity Building

Action 4 - Delivery of integration training / workshops to Elected Representatives / Senior Management in Local Authorities

The Year One objectives of the project, includes an undertaking by the four Local Authorities to hold a half-day workshop for senior management and elected representatives.

The two-hour workshop analyses various mechanisms for effective representation and participation of new communities in Local Authority policy and planning structures and how to 'mainstream' integration into all Local Authority working areas.

It also provides an excellent networking opportunity for senior management & elected representatives and new community leaders in the county to meet and discuss how to improve policy and practice. It is important that the workshop engages a strong representative group from within Senior Management and amongst the elected representatives in order to maximise its impact in terms of the project objectives.
