Community Engagement

Community engagement is often complex, invoking strong feelings, controversial issues, conflict and diverse interest groups.  This requires the use of highly skilled facilitation for successful outcomes. It is down the ‘deep end’ of facilitation work.

You can learn more about what makes a great facilitator and how their skills can help here: What do facilitators do?

Why work with us?

We created Groupwork Institute because we believe in the transformational capacity of people working well together in groups. We saw the need for people to learn the skills of great facilitation as well as having the opportunity to engage a good facilitator to assist groups in achieving their goals.

Our facilitators have had extensive experience and training working with groups and individuals in leadership and working well with people. A key point of difference is our approach to self-awareness, compassion and Emotional Resilience. Our practical skills and values-based approach have prepared us well for this work.
