CommunityAssemblies-Broadcast_Banner_PurpleFunghi.png This book contains all the links to information documents, training recordings, funding available and helpful organisations that you might need to run your local Community Assembly effectively.

Community Assembly Local Group Support Pack

Read all about the reason for running a Community Assembly in this Local Resource Pack.

Fill in this SUPPORT FORM to let us know if you plan to run your own local Community Assembly. We’ll put you in touch with other Local Groups who are deliberating on similar themes, or who can offer support for roles and support your local group however we can!

Community Assembly Manual

For everything you need to know about how to set up and run your local Community Assembly, check out the <a href="" target+"_blank">Handbook. This covers: how to prepare and organise a Community Assembly, facilitation and note-taking, how to choose an assembly question and how to build on this process.

Be aware, you can run assemblies either online or in-person; the latter tend to be more enriching experiences, but if you have the people and time resources to organise both, it will be more inclusive of everyone in your community. (Radical Inclusivity is one of the three tenets of a Citizens' Assembly). Combining both methods can be cost prohibitive, unless collaborating with a deliberative democracy ally who can share their resources and expertise, as it requires extra resources to those outlined in this guidance.

Community Alliance Building

Your local Community Assembly Project is a great opportunity to carry on working with your community allies and provides a channel that helps you start building alliances.
