Top Tips For Civic Innovation

Involve key stakeholders

Ensure you involve your key stakeholders

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. 

Don’t throw people in at the deep end

Other approaches can be used to lay the groundwork for civic engagement. If people are already actively involved in their community then they are more likely to want to, and feel able to, engage with decision-makers.
