community engagement / regions & cities / greater manchester
The Tameside Black Leaders Network was initially set up as part of a join effort with Tameside City Council to disseminate covid-19 messages.
The community engagement increases understanding of issues and empowers the grassroots leaders of Tameside to have their say over decisions that affect their lives and communities.
There is a strong partnership with external stakeholders, local authorities, local infrastructure organisations, and faith groups.
To date,CAHN hasbeen working with grassroots leaders to disseminate COVID-19 messages, by setting up a WhatsApp group and assisting with social media.
The importance of community engagement can enable change in local policies and service provisions that not only enrich lives of communities but help shape a communities’ future.
