South West Community Assembly community group review

On Monday representatives from Crosspool Forum will be attending a South West Community Assembly community group review at Sheffield town hall.

The purpose of the get together is to work out how local groups can be more involved in the work that the South West Community Assembly does on behalf of the wider community.

Matthew Rush, South West Community Assembly Officer, explains more:

Since before the official launch of the South West Community Assembly in May 2009 we have been looking at developing engagement with local groups. So far we have achieved mixed success and would now like to review the situation and look at using a model that is fit for purpose across the four wards. The hope is that we can involve groups more in the work that the Assembly does on behalf of the wider community.

Rather that replicating our previous attempts to nurture a formal relationship with community groups through the Partner Panel we would like to hear what your group has to say and what you feel is the best way forward.

It will be chaired by Councillor Mike Reynolds and include workshops as a way of exploring the best way forward.

Also invited to the session are representatives from Dore and Totley Ward Forum, Ecclesall Forum and Hallam Community Youth Association. We’ll report back on how it goes.
