Community Capacity Building Issues raised by reading HMIE reports
CCB Subgroup Looked at 68/93 summary Learning Community reports – criteria used to make judgements – range of work and partners covered Better understanding of: – contributions that different organisations and sectors make – how CCB can be better organised and delivered in different settings
Diverse approaches Great diversity in reports: – topics, organisations and activities covered – criteria used to assess them Reflects genuine diversity of community capacity building work and in communities Also reflects different evidence presented
CRITERIA “The impact of capacity building on communities” OUTCOME v PROCESS
STRENGTHS IDENTIFIED Most often: General nature and level of voluntary and community activity Only sometimes: Effectiveness/ capacity of groups Effectiveness of capacity building Inclusiveness of groups Engagement in decision making (more likely as a weakness)
SCOPE Who are the capacity builders? Are effective community groups: Active capacity building partners? Or indicators of success?
CONTEXT Why is socioeconomic profile relevant? How far does capacity building ‘need’ relate to affluence/ deprivation?
THE CHALLENGE We need to have a dialogue and: Get a clearer focus on identifying effective CCB work – What are its essential components? – Who is involved? – What should the priorities be? Show how CCB contributes to wider outcomes
WHO SHOULD BE INVOLVED? EVERYONE (CLDMS, LTS, HMIE, community and voluntary sectors etc)
