As part of the PSE UK team's commitment to encouraging public engagement, stimulating debate and informing policy, the team sought to develop new approaches to engaging with grassroots lobbying groups, community practitioners and people directly affected by poverty and social exclusion. In collaboration with the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland a pilot project was run with eight local community groups across Northern Ireland. The final report of the project's impact, 'We are sitting with the big people now', details the empowering impact this project had on the people involved. Further details can be found under Communities in Action
including the videos and other outputs of the community groups involved.
