A new report is just out highlighting project work from the second year of our Learning for Community Involvement project.
The project is supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government’s Empowerment Fund.
In the first year we sponsored a range of local pilot projects that demonstrated how high quality adult education could inspire and support the empowerment of individuals and groups at community level. A range of varied activities in widely different settings, such as health and digital inclusion, succeeded in engaging and supporting people in ‘getting involved’ as volunteers, campaigners, active citizens and representatives.
You can read more about the second year of the project in the year two report called Getting Active. It contains case studies and commentaries from our learners and partners, highlighting the different ways in which the project has supported people to participate in local matters and give voice to their experiences, and views, to better promote the needs of their communities.
The Learning for Community Involvement project is a national project managed by the WEA in the West Midlands.
