During May and June 2010 GAP Unit worked with an enthusiastic and diverse group of local Salford people, training them in presentation and data analysis skills.
The course was the second phase of a three-phase Community Researchers’ training. The five week course culminated in a successful presentation to people from Salford City Council, Salford CVS and representatives of other voluntary organisations in Salford at the end of July. The presentation and report covered research conducted by the first community researchers’ group on gender and participation in central Salford. The results make interesting reading and will inform the next phase of the project, in which the group will conduct focus groups and prepare a final report and presentations to three of Salford’s community committees. Participants are enthusiastic about moving to the next stage in their learning.
This phase has been funded by Take Part Pathfinders and run in partnership with Community Pride Unit, Salford City Council and Manchester Metropolitan University. More information at www.takepartsalford.org.uk/activities/gender-work
