PPFC-UK
This list has been retained 09/05/2014 no one can subscribe to this list and no one can post to this list - contact helpline@jiscmail.ac.uk for all enquiries regarding this list We are an affiliation of people involved in different ways in work around participation. We are active in a range of different sectors in the UK (health, community development, social exclusion, environment), in a range of different ways (academia, small and large voluntary organisations, statutory, freelance trainers and practitioners, community organisations) - and using a range of participatory approaches. Our common issue is that much that is done in the name of participation does not in fact lead to greater involvement of people, nor does it lead to any significant change in the status quo of power and decision-making. Our first step as a group has been to develop core principles that we believe define good participatory practice, and will use these to guide our activities both individually and collectively, working in association with others in small teams or networks in our own particular locations to improve participatory work. We see the Participatory Practitioners for Change group as an opportunity to link with other groups of practice and national level initiatives to share learning, prevent duplication and to promote greater effectiveness.
