Power to Change’s Peer Networks Programme

We’re currently delivering Power to Change’s Peer Networks programme with The Social Change Agency. Networks are powerful tools in helping community businesses thrive. The programme aims to explore innovative models of building strong networks in the sector.

In order to do this, we’re convening a Community of Practice (CoP) made up of 13 leading peer network practitioners, including:

The CoP will periodically come together to share challenges and successes in their experiences of network-building, as well as comment and test possible models and solutions.

Shared Assets and The Social Change Agency will be capturing their input and creating tools and resources for people wanting to build networks in the community business sector and beyond.

In particular, we are interested in applying these findings to the land-based sector and discovering which are the best ways to leverage networks to support common good land use.
