The impact of the central and local government cuts are now making a real impact on people’s lives in Haringey. Local services have been reduced and cut, community organisations and centres are closing, and funding is harder to come by. All the while local demand for support is growing as the recession and the cuts hit people’s livelihoods.
So what can be done? How can we work differently in the current context to make sure that people are able to cope and even thrive in Haringey?
Following on from our hugely successful event on “Doing More with Less” in May the new economics foundation and the Selby Centre will be hosting three more capacity building workshops over the summer. These will focus on;
- Coproduction, Peer Support and Time Banking
- Local enterprise training
- Tools and approaches for measuring social value and impact
The next of these workshops will take place at the Selby Centre on the 4th of July between 10.00 - 14.00
What can you expect from the day
This session will be a very practical and interactive introduction to the ideas of coproduction, peer support and time banking. If you ever wanted to know what it means to “coproduce” your work with people, how to make the most of peer support networks or how to set up and run a successful time bank, this is your chance. The specific areas we will be covering are;
· Coproduction – how organisations, services, projects and activities can be designed, run and delivered with and alongside people
· Peer Support – how people can be brought together in supportive and mutually beneficial ways to better realise the change they want to see in their lives
· Timebanking - how time banking can bring people, organisations and communities together around their collective skills, knowedge and time for the benefit of all
Who is this event for?
This event is for everyone who is concerned about the impact of the cuts and who wants to know how to respond in a positive way. Local residents, people that work in community groups and the third sector, local councillors and officers from Haringey Council will find this event particularly useful.
Lunch will be included in the event, so please let us know if you have any dietary requirements.
If you are interested in how to work in new ways with local people and communities to make Tottenham and Haringey better places to live in an age of cuts then sign up and book your place here – if you have any questions about the event please email email@example.com
