Description

Child Friendly Leeds’ 5th Anniversary Events Continue! Join us for our business networking event!

It is my pleasure to invite you to the next Child Friendly Leeds business network event on Monday 20 November, 8.15-9.45am. We hold this event annually and are always delighted by the take up and positive feedback we receive from delegates.

We have three excellent confirmed key note speakers, who will be talking about the ways that they support young people and specifically those with learning difficulties, through their business.

Come and listen to James Prince, the branch director of John Lewis Leeds, talk about the hugely successful supported internship scheme which he launched in Sheffield. Steven Foster, the centre director at White Rose Shopping centre, will give us an update about the ways they are embedding their commitment to young people across all fields of their business. Fiona Hill the community relations manager at First Direct Bank, will be talking about their exciting corporate social responsibility programme and the ways they have aligned the programme to the work of Child Friendly Leeds.

A key part of our work within Child Friendly Leeds is to keep the voice of the young person at the heart of everything we do. I am therefore very pleased that we will also have some young people speaking about their experiences of being supported by their employers, in the workplace.

We will also provide an update about the new Child Friendly Leeds Fund!

This year, supported by the Queens Hotel, we have decided to do a breakfast session, to allow maximum numbers of people to attend before their working day starts. We anticipate that this free event will be popular, so encourage you to book your place online, as soon as possible.

If you have any queries, please direct them to auli.miles@leeds.gov.uk

I look forward to seeing you on the 20th November. Councillor Lisa Mulherin
