Innovative Approach to Community Engagement
Dual Task approach
– Information and problem solving
– Capacity Building
• Two Community Cafes in Each Area based on World Cafe Concept plus street
interviews and focus groups
• Community Action Workshop in each area based on Appreciative enquiry (joint
with community members and stat/vol sector stakeholders).
• Just under 1,400 engaged (1,100 Cafe & FG participants and 300 street interviews)
• Wide spread in ethnicity and tradition and age / sex
• Approx 5% of the resident population
So findings are expressed needs and perceptions of a significant sample of
people living in the most deprived areas of London
