  49. 49. AIM | ACCESSIBILITY & INCLUSION FOR MIRGRANTS What does Community Collaboration look like? Community Collaboration typically takes place in groups and can include neighbourhood watch, clean ups, running festivals and events, community development and much more.

  50. 50. AIM | ACCESSIBILITY & INCLUSION FOR MIRGRANTS Why Collaborate? Collaborating in a community setting can open you up to additional skills and resources to do things that you couldn’t achieve on your own.

Getting collaboration right though, takes effort and a culture open to change. Collaborations require serious effort to make them work.

Perspective: You see angles and flaws you would not have seen yourself Speed: You are able to work faster, identify the best ideas more quickly Decisions: A sounding board helps you talk through your own decisions, understand your own thinking more easily. Validation: A good collaboration partner can help support your best ideas and spur you forward in the right direction.
  52. 52. AIM | ACCESSIBILITY & INCLUSION FOR MIRGRANTS Why Collaborate? We know the saying - a problem shared is a problem halved.

Problems don’t seem as overwhelming when you talk about them, and two people are more likely to find a solution than one.
