The Community Practitioners' Network (CPN) brings together community practitioners from across the UK. It provides an informal space where people come together, reflect and listen to each other's experiences. It also provides expert input and guidance through guest lectures and webinars as well as informal networking opportunities and wider issue based discussion groups.

With this type of work the first thing that drops off the agenda is looking after yourself. The Community Practitioners Network is about having those critical friends that ask those difficult questions. It helps your own learning and is useful for developing your skills, and challenging your own practice.
