The purpose of this National Conference is to:-

  • Showcase the resources developed through the Programme
  • Discuss how the resources can be incorporated into training and learning provision within organisations to improve performance in community engagement
  • Explore how sustainable training and learning provision impacts on the practice and processes of community engagement

The conference is open to all public, third and community sector organisations with a role and interest in community engagement.  The event is FREE but places must be booked in advance.
