Community Rights Made Real

The aims of the Community Rights Made Real workshop
Urban Forum and London Civic Forum ran a free workshop to prepare for the practicalities, opportunities and challenges of the rights within the Localism Bill.  We wanted to support inclusion and equality in how the new rights are taken up; focussing in particular on the needs of communities who currently lack power.

As the government introduces new community rights designed to give local people the chance to take action on local services, assets and development, we wanted to make sure that communities are equipped with the knowledge and skills to take advantage of these when the Localism Bill comes into force in 2012.
