Welcome to our new website
FCDL is the UK wide membership networking organisation that supports community development through advancing and promoting good quality Community Development learning and practice at local, regional and national levels. FCDL works to provide a network to support the development, evaluation and dissemination of good quality Community Development learning, training and qualification opportunities.
The Federation has a long-established reputation for the excellence of our skills and knowledge and our high quality training expertise.
FCDL has always played a leading role in the development and reviews of the Community Development National Occupational Standards, (CD NOS). We currently hold custodianship of the CD NOS, in partnership with our youth work colleagues.
All our past funded projects have provided free and customised development and learning support to a range of small, diverse and marginalised community groups. This work has provided us with the opportunity to learn from community led groups and networks bringing diverse perspectives, insights and experiences.
We can support you to use Community Development approaches to work effectively and inclusively in health, housing, environment, learning and other community and strategic settings.
FCDL can offer:
● Customised training (accredited and non-accredited)
● Consultancy, research and evaluation.
We use a sliding scale of charges. We are more than happy to discuss your needs or ideas with you. Talk to us on 0114 258 7270 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
