Leadership is essential to the success of tenant and community groups, and yet is often overlooked. What does 'leadership' mean in the context of communities?

Further details

Many of the images we have of leadership come from the military, politics or business. However, people who are prepared to get involved and stand up for others in their community are also leaders, whether recognised as such or not. In this course we shall look at examples of successful community leaders, share ideas and experiences and explore a range of practical skills and methods that you can take back and use.
