We are continuing to run a series of seminars aimed at our members (consultants), potential members and individuals in the sector who want to know more about what makes the charity sector tick and how they can best use their skills and expertise within it. It is also a chance to network and in this regard, we are changing the times of our seminars to 5pm so that you can enjoy the company of others over a glass of wine, if that takes your liking.
“Working With Families With Multiple/Complex Needs”, on Wednesday 5th October at 5pm
Troubled Families was a focus for the last government as resources were channelled to new programmes that aimed to tackle pervasive issues spanning many generations. But what are the realities of working on the front line with families that have complex needs? And how successful have these really been? The charity Family Action has been working with just these sorts of families and issues almost since its founding in 1869. Jayne Stokes, Director of Development and External Affairs, Family Action will be sharing her considerable experience of providing services to meet the changing needs of families in the UK.
This seminar will be of interest to anyone who has links with charities and social enterprises supporting at risk families or who are generally interested in the interface between statutory social services and not-for-profit organisations.
Where is the seminar and how do I get in?
The seminar will be held at 5pm at CAN Mezzanine, 49-51 East Road, London N1 6AH. The nearest tube is Old Street. There is no charge for entry. To reserve a place you will need to email Dawn McNulty, firstname.lastname@example.org
