Making your group work well

Community groups are most effective when it’s clear to everyone how things work and what they can do to contribute. You don’t need lots of complex policies and procedures, but it does help to put some things in writing so that everyone can see what’s been agreed. This section contains tips and advice to help your group run smoothly behind the scenes.
