Top Tips For Civic Innovation

Focus on the Solution

Much engagement with service providers and public representatives tends to focus on what is not working.

Think Strategically

Any tool or approach will only be effective if well planned and deployed as part of an engagement strategy. This involves planning, relationship building, and follow-up.

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.
