Community participation is about including local people in the decision-making and delivery of your project. It could involve opportunities for communities to influence the direction of your project, or to take a role in delivering heritage conservation or learning activities. This guidance will help you to decide the most appropriate level of participation for your project, and tips on making it work.
Please note that this guidance does not reflect the changes we have made to our funding programmes. New good-practice guidance on community engagement will be available shortly.
