Sharing Dreams – Inviting Support

RCD projects will enable indiviudals to develop their dreams to the point where they either:

  • decide that they are not realistic and park them in favour of different aspirations – in which case the dream process starts afresh, or
  • believe in them strongly enough to want to act on them.

In this second case people will be invited to make their dream public.  This will  serve two purposes:

  • it will increase their commitment to the dream
  • it will make it possible for others in the community, and beyond, to offer help and support to the individual in achieving their dream.

Setting up a ‘dreams database’ where individuals with resources, skills and expertise can be put in touch with those who can use the support effectively will be a key component of the project.  The dreams database will take the form of a website and an e-mail/listserver that will serve to significantly increase the reach of the project in securing resources for its memebers.  This resource will complement the work of the local RCD panel in identifying support for local people.

Both the Dreams Database and the RCD panel will help the RCD coach to put people in touch with the support that they need to move things forward.

    I found your page following a link on fb by Kathryn Fitzsimons,. I’m not quite sure what exactly you do, but the dreams bit might be something I’d be interested in at some point. I live in East Leeds, a rather hidden area in many ways because it is not quite deprived enough to attract attention like some areas and yet has many many problems and is not affluent and attracting innovation that way. I have many dreams for our community… some may be viable… soem may not…We have thought about community cafes, listening spaces, meeting places… connecting people and ideas… all to help improve the area…. is this the sort of thing you might get involved with? If so how?
