Benefits of Networking

The Empowering Communities Partnership has a strong focus on networking. When a network is successful…

  • Collaboration replaces competition and partnerships can be developed.
  • Limited resources can be stretched further by sharing information, skills, and spaces.
  • People and organisations can connect with others who share their concerns and interests.
  • People and organisations can be heard and have influence over the way decisions are made.
  • There is ‘No Wrong Door’ as questions can be answered and problems solved by the network.
  • Local communities are empowered, and isolation decreases as people are working together and collective knowledge increases.
