Table 6 Get On Up Conversation

During a group exercise, delegates from the voluntary sector got the opportunity to speak to the public/statutory sector about their ideas for improving how organisations consult, engage and involve.

The key point to come out of the conversation was that the voluntary sector would benefit from having short-term, tangible targets.  Shuguftah talked about quick wins – how can you clear my rubbish up from my street next week?  And give incentives!
