Top Tips For Civic Innovation

Identify champions

It can really help you to engage with a decision maker if you can identify and build a relationship with a 'champion'.

Be clear about who you want to engage with and why

There are many democratic institutions in Northern Ireland (local Councils, local and regional service providers, government departments), and therefore many tiers of decision making. 

Get Help

There are many voluntary and statutory organisations which can provide help and support as you try to understand more about the decision-making processes that affect your life, and as you work to engage more with them.
