Our first gathering is open to organisations with experience of applying the Lundy Model of Participation across teams/divisions/departments, and who are able to evidence impact and share resources.

Professor Laura Lundy says:

“I am really looking forward to attending the first ever national leading Lundy community of practice gathering. It will be so useful to all of us to hear from those organisations who have experience in applying the model in their practice, and sharing and celebrating good practice.  I am grateful to everyone who has organised it and who is coming and I am very excited to meet everyone in Manchester.”

The event is free to attend, lunch and refreshments will also be provided. As places are limited, we kindly ask a maximum of 3 delegates per organisation. Due to anticipated demand for this event, we are operating a two stage registration process.  Please register your interest and you will be notified on or after 22 March if you have secured a place. 

Thanks to our event sponsors Economic and Social research Council.

  • amplifying and uniting the voices of participation leads who are working on a day-to-day basis with the Lundy Model
  • collating a national narrative of the impact of the Lundy Model to showcase to funders, educators and government departments
  • collation of resources from across the network that are free to access
  • children, young people, and families across the four regions are receiving quality participation opportunities within rights respecting contexts.
