Wick Award Community Research Training Programme

Do you want to be a Community Researcher?
We want local residents to do Community Research to bring about change in Hackney Wick
A community researcher is a person who:
- researches and gathers information using a wide range of activities, engagement tools and techniques
- uses the information collected to understand local needs and provide background to shape evidence-based projects to benefit the community
- develops analytical skills to present the information
Wick Award is offering a free three month course running from September 2015
