Building on research, evaluation and public consultation undertaken to support cultural sector projects and programmes, CDC offers consultation services with a genuine desire to see greater public engagement in decision-making.
The call for increased evidence-based decision making has lead the way for more, and better public consultation. At its most effective, consultation allows for real dialogue between individuals, groups and service providers with the aim of influencing decisions, policies and programmes of work.
Sound research methodology, clear marketing communications and the principles of audience development combine to form the basis of effective community consultation.
CDC’s flexible approach means that we are available for one-off ad hoc projects or longer-term programmes of work. Christina’s network of associates enables a small consultancy to handle large-scale consultation work, bringing in PR, event management and communications campaign delivery skills as required.
