Practical guide to engaging communities, published by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in 2014:

"There are lots of ways to reach people in your area. Think about where they get their information locally and use those outlets to get your message across. Here are some you could try:

  • Community groups
  • NCT
  • WI
  • Scouts/Guides
  • Youth clubs
  • Civil societies
  • Local history groups (British Association of Local History Societies)
  • County archaeological and historical societies
  • Parish centenary projects
  • Family history groups
  • Ex-service groups
  • Pensioner clubs
  • Schools
  • Libraries, county record offices and museums
  • Local authority Historic Environment Record Advisers (HERs)
  • Local media – print, online and broadcast (particularly those aimed at parents)
  • Social media – try to target local branches of national groups e.g. Netmums and Mumsnet"
