Promoting Resilience – Priorities and Support for the Voluntary and Community Sector

19/11/2011 @ 10:00 - 15:00

This free conference will bring together Islington’s local groups, network organisations, volunteers, councillors and MPs to look at how we can work across the Borough to improve fairness and as such to address the support and priorities for the voluntary and community sector (VCS) to help create more resilience.

Join us to address some key issues:

  • What are the priorities for the sector and the community we serve?
  • What support services do you need to develop your services and improve resilience?
  • How we can work across Islington to improve fairness?

Town Hall debate, in-depth discussion groups, fantastic networking opportunities – and lunch!  This important community event is open to all voluntary and community groups (staff, volunteers and trustees), and anyone interested in thriving and resilient community action in Islington.

Key speakers include:

Cllr Catherine West, Leader of Islington Council
Cllr Paul Convery, Executive Member for Planning, Regeneration and Transport
Neil Jameson – Founding Executive Director of CITIZENS UK
Derek Millar – Victim Support, North London Divisional Manager

The conference is organised in partnership between Voluntary Action Islington, the Islington Community Network and Islington Council. It will focus on issues facing organisations and residents in the current economic and political climate. It will offer an opportunity to look at how VCS organisations can use and engage with the findings and recommendations of the Fairness Commission report, and how concrete interventions can be developed.
