VCS Insights Welcomed at ‘Reset and Recovery’ Workshops
08 Sep 2020 by Mazeline Hemmings
- VCS Feature
Voluntary organisations, charities and community groups in Sandwell are invited to take part in upcoming workshops to discuss how support for local people can best be delivered in light of the Covid 19 pandemic.
Those attending the workshops will have the opportunity to hear about Sandwell Council’s recovery plans and initial findings of the COVID-19 community impact work undertaken by the Council. The workshop discussions will help shape the ongoing recovery work undertaken by the Council and the Council’s planning in how best to support local communities in the future.
Discussions will focus on: –
• How residents are accessing services and how good practice is making this happen
• Understanding barriers to participation and inclusion
• Sharing perspectives on the impact on communities in the short, medium and long term
Each of the four workshop sessions will be themed to cover the following areas:-
• Children and Young People
• Over 50’s
• Health and Wellbeing
• Welfare and Advice
SCVO will be hosting these workshops virtually using a video conferencing platform, and will be welcoming a Sandwell Council Director to lead discussions. Further information is available on this flyer.
