Approach to Community Engagement

What is Community engagement?

Community Engagement is about working together and engaging with individuals, local communities and organisations to identify their needs and ensure these influence how services are delivered and planned for in the Fermanagh and Omagh District Council area.

There is no single definition of community engagement, but, broadly, it is when members of the public, either as individuals or as a community, are involved in decisions about service development, commissioning and delivery.

Engagement 2015

In developing the draft content of the Community Plan a three-stage approach to engagement took place over a 26-week period from the 26th October 2015 to gather views of the community and key stakeholders on the priority issues for the area. The three stages are outlined below alongside relevant reports and summaries from each stage of engagement.

Stage 1: to identify key issues for stakeholders.

Stage 2: to prioritise key issues identified and develop associated outcomes and performance indicators to address these.

Stage 3: to review the performance indicators and suggest innovative actions to progress the outcomes.

A copy of the summary report can be downloaded (Community Planning Engagement Report 2015) here.

The engagement findings will now be reviewed with statutory agencies and other support partners, together with a strategy review carried out by McClure Watters (Community Planning Strategy Review), which you can download here.

903 people engaged with the process, 50% of whom registered to be involved in the process on an on-going basis. A copy of the participation statistics at each of our roadshow events, as well as online, can be downloaded here (Community Planning Participation Statistics 2015).

Of those who engaged with the process, 50% completed questionnaires and an overview of the Section 75 categories can be downloaded here (Section 75 Engagement statistics 2015)

What did Stage One of the Community Planning engagement process involve?
During June, July and August 2015 the Council facilitated seven public workshops throughout the Fermanagh and Omagh District area. At the workshops statistical information was presented and evidence prepared by the SMART Region project and attendees were asked to identify issues for the Community Plan. Results from an online survey and four road shows were also collated during this process.
