There’s a lot of talk and energy about new ideas and online techniques for building communities.  But let’s not forget what we already know works, and encourage People Powered Change to continue to support the networks and people who’ve been working in and for communities for years – because the cuts mean they are in danger of becoming an endangered species.  Grassroots community activity needs gardeners to help it flourish, people who know how to water the ground, what grows best in that soil, and where to go for the best plants. I understand that BIG in the East region is supportive of its regional community development network, and the network developing from the regional empowerment partnership there.  So my question for Peter Wanless is:  will People Powered Change be prepared to focus on the infrastructure supporting communities, as well as individual community groups, and how does he see that developing?
