North Shropshire Networking Event
Shropshire Voluntary and Community Sector Assembly supported by Shropshire Council, UK, Market Drayton, North Shropshire
West Midlands, £3
At the 2017 VCSA Annual Assembly, VCSA Members asked for more opportunities for networking and to be more involved with the work of the Shropshire Voluntary and Community Sector Assembly. Over the past 12 months the VCSA have arranged events to discuss Welfare Reform and Social Prescribing and a training session on GDPR and in November 2017 the Shropshire VCSA hosted their first networking event. Following the success of this event, the VCSA Board thought it would be a good idea to host further opportunities which specifically focus on the work of the Assembly. They have chosen dates in June to celebrate Small Charity Week.
The networking events will take place in a “World Café” style, an informal method which allows a relaxed, creative and comfortable environment for thinking and listening – if you’ve never tried this before, come along to find out more!
The topics of conversation at the event could focus on VCSA Membership, current topics and issues such as Welfare Reform and Prevention, leadership within the sector and promoting the VCSA/strengthening the voice of the sector. Alongside these discussions there will be lots of networking.
Reserve your place via the eventbrite page. The cost per attendee is £3 and this will be payable on the door (this will be used to pay a donation to the host organisation and to support the VCS Assembly’s work). You will also need to bring a little extra to pay for any refreshments you wish to purchase. Please help us make this event a success so we are able to host more in the future! We looking forward to seeing you there!
