Lead Facilitator, “How Do We?” Community Consultation Programme
With the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, Hillsborough Castle has embarked upon a major development programme to re-present the Castle and Gardens, enhance the site facilities and develop an inspiring, accessible public programme to open the doors of Hillsborough Castle to everyone.
How Do We? is an ambitious five-year community engagement project, which aims to build relationships with a diverse range of audiences across Northern Ireland. Funded by the Garfield Weston Foundation, this flagship project will support the development of long-term programming, in response to community needs and aspirations for the site. The project will be cognisant of the sensitive nature of Hillsborough Castle’s narratives, its role in recent political history and its potential to enhance future community wellbeing in the future.
Historic Royal Palaces wishes to recruit an experienced and appropriately skilled consultant/consultant team to undertake an initial 2 year programme of consultation, evaluation and action research from May 2018 to April 2020.
