Joey Edwardh is the Executive Director of Community Development Halton, a research and development organization that serves Halton’s non-profit agencies and community organizations. Joey’s team put together an amazing resource called, Where We Live Matters: Place-Based Neighbourhood Work- A Review, Promising Practice and Approach.

During this Community of Practice call, Joey leads us on an exploration of this document: what inspired this investigation, some of what they discovered, the role of an "animator" who enlivens and encourages development in community, funding for work that is hard to measure, and more!

This was a lively discussion that anyone working in neighbourhoods will find really useful!
