Muddy Feet training specialises in community development and participation and has developed a number of different consultation and inclusion techniques drawn from a career of community-led projects in local open spaces.
Muddy Feet Training has 12 years experience of working with local communities to develop local outdoor space including park, playgrounds, and art projects. We have designed and delivered a range of accredited and unaccredited participatory training courses and training materials for adults, young people and children.
We specialise in involving local people in the debate over the future of their local area, helping them to take informed decisions on plans and proposed developments. We have worked with local authorities, developers and housing providers to offer a forum where meaningful and effective consultation can take place.
