This report is intended as a practical resource for local councils wishing to engage their communities in decision making and planning. The focus is on how to broaden the range of people represented in council processes, especially those who are reluctant to participate in traditional consultation methods. Councils sometimes think of these groups as being hard to reach. We hope that this report will go some way towards redressing this perception.
