Sharing knowledge: community project case studies


This is a collection of experiences from the viewpoint of volunteers and community groups who run their own projects, or have got involved with Exmoor projects in various ways.

The aim of the case studies is to share ideas, advice and encouragement through examples like these, for people considering their own community or volunteer-based project. Click on a case study in the list below to view/download a PDF.
