Are you part of the local community sector? Want to find out how groups are coping in the economic climate, how to become more sustainable and recruit more volunteers? Then come along to ‘All About Us’, a community conference, on Thursday 23 March at the Broadway Hotel in Letchworth.
Organised by North Herts Council, North Herts and Stevenage Centre for Voluntary Services (CVS) and Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, the event will discuss a range of topics relevant to the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sector.
Local groups will share their experiences of operating in the present climate and funders will be in attendance to talk about their grants and offer practical advice about making a successful grant application. Volunteer recruitment, collaborative working and environmental sustainability will also be on the agenda.
Cllr Elizabeth Dennis-Harburg, Leader of North Herts Council, said: “We’re proud to be one of the partners hosting this event. Many people are struggling at the moment and the community sector plays a crucial role, bringing our communities together so they can thrive. This event is a great opportunity to share ideas and best practice so we can continue supporting each other.”
Hannah Morgan-Gray, Chief Executive at North Herts & Stevenage CVS, added: “We are all aware that the UK is facing its biggest cost of living crisis in decades. This not only impacts every one of us but also this sector. The cost-of-living crisis means that many local groups and organisations are finding it difficult to deliver support to our community - just when so many need it the most.”
Graham Fisher, CEO at Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, added: “We encourage all local organisations to attend and add their voice. They will positively influence the work of the organising partners and others to help improve support, sustainability and greater opportunities for both their group and the wider community.”
