This page contains all the guidance and materials you would need to run an Innovation in Democracy introductory workshop.
At the end of November 2018, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) worked with Policy Lab to run three workshops for local authorities on the Innovation in Democracy Programme.
These workshops introduced the programme, worked through the opportunities and challenges in attendees’ local authorities, and helped attendees with their Expression of Interest (EoI) form.
The materials from these workshops, designed and produced by Policy Lab, are available here for use by all - local authorities may find it useful to use some of the interactive resources with internal teams to work through how they might approach a bid for this programme.
The documents provided here are:
guidance to the Innovation in Democracy Resource Pack - this has information in how to use the evidence pack and the interactive workshop materials
Innovation in Democracy Programme - workshop evidence pack
Innovation in Democracy Programme - all workshop materials
Innovation in Democracy Programme - Expression of Interest worksheet
