Local Councils play a significant role in shaping our communities which impacts the lives of its residents. Whether devolved or not; local councils are increasingly responsible for delivering services and managing community assets. Many of these will directly affect the health and wellbeing of residents.
The social wellbeing of a community relies strongly on the services, facilities, and activities available and on the opportunity for community engagement, interaction, development of a sense of inclusion and community cohesion. As the first tier of local government, this is an area where we are best placed to make a positive impact.
During this conference we will be focussing on four key areas Community Support, Partnerships, Funding and Youth. You will come away with the ideas, skills, and practical tools you need to achieve more for your community.
The event offers delegates the opportunity to build connections, resource anchor organisations and empower their councils and community leaders to develop and deliver a diverse range of community enhancement projects and support.
Our programme includes peer led keynote addresses, speakers from our principal authorities Buckinghamshire Council and Milton Keynes City Council, panel discussions, peer to peer workshops and Q&A sessions to enable delegates to share best practice and inspire future collaboration while highlighting new opportunities. Our exhibitors will offer not only practical advice and solutions, but also act as springboards to our delegates.
