Submit Your Resource

You can use this page to suggest resources that you would like to see on the Mesh site. These could be case studies, reports or anecdotal evidence from your own community engagement projects; guidelines (written or audiovisual) or templates that you have found helpful when planning, implementing or evaluating projects; academic papers, reports or research that highlight good practise; or any other resources, materials or learning that you think would be of interest to the community.

Below are guidelines for uploading, reattribution and copyright for the different resource formats. Note that you can also upload resources that include more than one of these formats (e.g. free text with an embedded video and image and an attached pdf) they are separated here for clarity.

Once submitted we will review your resources and let you know if we need any additional information to enhance the resource or if the resource would be better placed elsewhere.
