Voluntary and Community Sector organisations active within the Black Country with an interest in community safety and support for local victims of crime are invited to come together and meet the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson at a special networking event on 11th May 2015.
This event is for organisations which provide services supporting victims of crime, or which have an interest in helping local residents and communities to stay safe, eg through project initiatives or by signposting victims to more specialist support agencies.
The event, run jointly by Dudley CVS, Sandwell CVO, Walsall Voluntary Action and Wolverhampton VSC, will provide participants space to network with similar organisations across the Black Country and discuss opportunities for cross-border collaboration. It will also give organisations the chance to hear Police and Crime Commissioner Jamieson’s views on the important role VCS organisations have in building safer communities and supporting victims locally, as well as an update on the work of the emerging West Midlands Victims Commission.
Participants are encouraged to bring marketing hand-outs to share about their organisation to make this a really productive networking occasion.
The event is taking place at Bilston Town Hall, Church Street, Bilston, WV14 0AT, and opens with lunch at 12.30 pm, running until 4 pm. Places are strictly limited and offered on a first come first served basis.
