Dumfries and Galloway council developed the concept of inviting all Community Councils to a central venue for resilience training.
There are a large number of Community Council's within Dumfries & Galloway spread over a large geographical area. It's not feasible to visit every Community Council to promote the Community Resilience concept.
Dumfries & Galloway is split into 4 distinct areas, thus enabling 4 separate training nights to be developed in each geographical location. Two representatives from each Community Council within each area were asked to attend the training nights.
This concept worked well and attendance was high at each event (compared to other training offered to Community Council's).
Feedback and evaluations from each training night were very positive.
