This toolkit shares social science research insights from the MANY (Mobile Access North Yorkshire) project: working to put 5G connectivity infrastructures in place for very rural communities.
It is designed to guide those seeking to directly engage with communities in difficult and sometimes controversial projects: to help you use community engagement insight to shape your project and the value it delivers.
The toolkit is divided into three sections – themes (what we have learned), principles (what community engagement is trying to achieve) and methods (how to achieve it). The Toolkit Matrix (page 35), provides a snapshot of how the three elements fit together. It maps out the knowledge generating and sharing mechanisms required to enable community engagement insights to be collected and used to deliver real value for your community and your project stakeholders.
