What’s the point of Community Action?

Community Action plays a vital role in supporting voluntary and community groups in Derby was the clear message  from a recent strategy building event.  Called Your Sector, Your Say the event was hosted by Community Action to find out the views and ideas from voluntary groups from across the city to help build a strategy for how to improve the services and support currently given to groups.

The event was one very big conversation with about 200 people attending from local charities, voluntary groups as well as Derby City Council.  To help capture the spirit and conversations the Citizens’ Eye team were invited down to ask the direct question ‘What’s the point of Community Action?’

Here’s some of the views and feedback we captured on the day.
