  • discuss different types of funding and tell us what you think works best and why
  • think about different types of partnership activities and let us know your ideas
  • review the key themes from some of our workshops over the summer
  • understand what comes next and see our progress

From the beginning of July to the end of September we ran a series of workshops that were designed to bring voluntary and community organisations together around each priority area. The aim of each workshop was to collect feedback and ideas from the content and questions in the discussion papers.

We also set up individual meetings with organisations who were not able to attend the workshops and we were very pleased to receive your answers to the discussion paper questions.

Your feedback has enabled us to expand our understanding of each priority area and also spot some key themes that are common across them all.

Download our document below to see who we contacted, what the three key themes are across all four priorities and what the main themes are for each individual priority area.

Community Impacts – Key Themes from Engagement


The Community Impacts Advisory Board met in August.

Everyone reflected on the purpose of the meeting and reviewed the progress of Community Impacts (so far). The meeting was also a good opportunity for each member to meet for the second time and hear each other’s ideas, views and recommendations.

In the meeting the Advisory Board 

  • reviewed some of the key themes that were beginning to show from the workshops and your discussion paper answers
  • provided recommendations on who else we could speak to and what else could be done in September to get more feedback using our engagement grid

The Advisory Board will be meeting again in October. 


We need your help

We have collected some information about Rough Sleeping, Mental Health, Youth Offending and Supporting People in the Community but there are some key questions that we need your help answering.

We have 4 conversations to share with you. You can download each one on the Priority Areas page.

Your answers are very important because they will help us learn more about what is happening in the borough and how we can work together to provide more support. There are lots of ways you can tell us – please see the Contact Us page to let us know what your answers are.


The Community Impacts Advisory Board met each other for the first time on 16 June 2017. They are very excited to be part of Community Impacts. They have lots of knowledge about the priority areas and a great relationship with the community.

Their job will be to make sure that:

  • Decisions are fair and transparent,
  • Activities fit with the ideas of Community Impacts and the priority areas,
  • They share their expert knowledge with us so that we can keep learning.

In the first meeting the Advisory Board spoke about

  • the key aims of Community Impacts and the process of getting us from one stage to the next. This means looking at everything we need to do and dividing it into key stages that we can adapt and change if we need to
  • their own knowledge of Rough Sleeping, Mental Health, Youth Offending and Supporting People in the Community
  • what we know about these four areas and the issues that we need to solve and support
  • ideas for we can build a shared understanding of what is going on in Camden around each of the four priority areas
  • their role as a member of the Advisory Board (Terms of Reference) and how this fits in with Community Impacts, the community and the voluntary and community sector

The Advisory Board will be meeting again in August.
