By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.

The purpose of this dialogue and deliberation training is to provide training in the communication practices and facilitation skills necessary to achieve a shift in local democracy.
Capacity building: To train participants in the practice of dialogue and deliberation (D+D), and to strengthen facilitation skills (‘macro’ strategic work + ‘micro’ facilitating of conversations).
Relevance: To link this to your context in community empowerment (CE) and community planning (CP), AND to the challenge of nurturing new forms of local democracy.
By the End of the session participants will:
Have a clear understanding of “Dialogue and Deliberation” and how it applies to good community engagement work.
Have a clear understanding how good Dialogue and Deliberation connects with Community Planning and Community Empowerment.
Be able to cascade learning to colleagues and work teams
This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action in partnership with Fife’s Community Planning Partnership
Who is it for?
Anyone who, as part of their work remit has a regular role in working with community groups or has to engage with communities on a regular basis. There will be an expectation that those who attend will be prepared to cascade training to others including colleagues and Community Planning Partners.
