Are you making the right connections?

View resources

A good question to ask when collaborating is – who are you working with?

Your project could be made richer by connecting with and centreing existing organisations that specialise in the areas you’re tackling – like migrant and refugee advocacy groups and people with lived experience.

It’s also useful to consult widely – as no one member of a community can ever entirely represent that community.

It’s good practice to constantly reflect on who you are liaising with and what their position is within a bigger community context: are they elders or younger people? How much authority or power do they hold?
