Managing Activities

This section contains lots of forms and help sheets that are designed to make it as easy as possible to run programs, activities or events for your community. There are three chapters to the section - for before, during and after the activity. For an activity to work best, it should contain:

A structured approach to planning before the event or activity, so that everyone is clear on the project's purpose;

An organised approach to managing the activity, so that it can run smoothly, with as few 'unexpected issues’ as possible;

An evaluation and review plan, so that the group can know how successful they were and so that the process can be improved next time.

Although each of these chapters is complete for its own sake, it's best to look at each of the sections in order. For example, there's no point waiting until after the activity before looking at the evaluation plan or going straight into running the event but skipping the planning stage.
