Collaborate events are opportunities for Community Action Groups (CAGs) working on similar projects or across a common theme to meet up, share and find ways of working together.

The quarterly meetings are open to members of the CAG network, as well as other associated, like-minded groups and organisations. We also moderate theme mailing lists for CAGs to communicate with each other between meetings.

As a large network spread across the county, the meetings are an important chance for CAGs to:

  • Discover more about other groups’ activities and achievements
  • Share knowledge and skills
  • Explore opportunities for collaborative projects and funding bids
  • Gain advice and support from The CAG Project staff and other members
  • Network and socialise with other members

We currently are coordinating meetings around the following themes:

  • Growing
  • Waste
  • Education
  • Food surplus

If you are a member of a group wishing to take part in one of these meetings or wish to start a Collaborate on a new theme please get in touch with Alice Hemming (The CAG Project Coordinator): alice.hemming@resourcefutures.co.uk
