Active Burngreave - Real Community Engagement

Kathyrn Mudge from Yorkshire Sport Foundation will be delivering a webinar 18th March 2019 14:30pm - 15:30 pm

The webinar will focus on:

Real Community Engagement: Engaging with communities from the grassroots, understanding a place and the people who live there.

Active Burngreave has used a 'placed-based approach' to reduce inactivity levels in a deprived, ethnically diverse inner-city ward of Sheffield. The project has successfully engaged and empowered the local community to create a locally driven activity project. Consultation and an 'Asset Based Community Development Approach' has ensured the community have been at the centre of all decisions, shaping exactly what delivery looks and feels like. Community Leaders have come together in their support and local groups have been commissioned to provide activities. Activity projects provide weekly opportunities for local residents and are delivered by trusted local groups.

This is important so you can hear the webinar! The "connect to audio" option should open automatically. Choose "call using computer" unless you want to dial in from a phone (use the drop down box to choose this and enter your phone number). Then click Connect Audio. Your name (in the participants box) should then have a headset next to it (or a phone symbol if you're calling in)

You can change the volume of your speakers and mic by clicking on the control button with three dots on.

Enjoying and engaging with the Webinar:

  • If you are having trouble you can communicate with us via the chat box. Click on the blue circle with a speech bubble. You can choose to send a message to everyone (this will show in everyone's chat box) or use the drop down box to choose to send the message just to the host etc.
  • At the start we will usually ask you to mute your audio and video
  • If you want to speak you can raise your hand by clicking on the hand icon by your name in the participants box.
  • You can add notes by clicking on the control button with three dots on. These can be saved onto your computer at the end.

These days, 'modern life' can mean that we're a lot less active. With so many opportunities to watch TV or play computer games, and with so much convenience and fast food available, we don't move about as much, or eat as well as we used to.
