Front cover of Urban Forum report with photograph of a group discussionSurveys, focus groups, participatory workshops … and lots of learning!

These pages contain information from the Community Rights Made Real project funded by the Barrow Cadbury Trust which took place in Dudley between July 2011 and April 2012. The project was led by Urban Forum, and delivered with partners Dudley CVS, Dudley Community Partnership, Dudley MBC and Social Spaces. The content of this archive draws on the Community Rights Made Real project report written by Caitlin McMullin and Nick Bird, along with writing of some of the project planning group members (primarily Nick Bird, Caitlin McMullin, Lorna Prescott, Melissa Guest, Joanne Weston and Donna Roberts) and notes from discussions among the planning group members and project participants throughout the project. We have included uploads of our documents and publicity and links to other websites as these may be useful to other practitioners.
