Description

Dear Colleague

We would like to invite you to our 'Building a Stronger Warwickshire Together' Conference on Wednesday 9th November 2016 from 9:30am – 16:00pm (registration from 9:00am) at the Dunchurch Park Hotel and Conference Centre.

Building on a long and positive history of joint working, the Public and Third Sectors in Warwickshire need to collaborate even more closely to support stronger and more resilient communities in these challenging times. 

We want to improve the way the Sectors work together, and focus on supporting our communities to take responsibility for their own future, which in turn, will reduce demand for public sector provision.

You may have attended events for third and public sector partners held over the last few years, which culminated in the establishment of the Warwickshire Third and Public Sector Partnership Group (TAPSPG) in 2015.  TAPSPG's role is to improve partnership working between the third and public sectors across the county which will lead to improved services and support for our residents.  Building a Stronger Warwickshire Together is our first annual conference. It’s focused on how we can work together to maximise opportunities to support stronger, more resilient communities by building on the wealth of assets that residents, neighbourhoods and partners already possess.

The Conference will feature key speakers, group discussion, a marketplace showcasing local third and public sector providers, and a selection of bite sized training sessions.
