Our approach is adapted each time we work with a group to make sure that it is flexible and meets the needs of the people taking part.

We use a range of methods to consult with groups including the use of touch, sight and sound to allow participation in a way that people feel comfortable with.

Over time we have been able to develop a range of tools to work on many different issues.

Typical tools include post-it notes and flip charts, mapping, diagrams and charts. Our approach is specifically designed to be interactive rather than extractive. 

We can use the tools we have developed in a variety of settings and they work well both with groups of people or with individuals.

We recognise that it is essential to allow time to plan, prepare and review our work in order to meet the needs of the communities we are working with and to create a person-centred environment.

We constantly challenge ourselves to use our creativity and to be innovative. We recognise that tools used previously and that worked well may need to be replaced to ensure we meet the needs of each new group invited to take part in our work.
