Description

Mayors’ conversation with people who work in communities

Dear Colleagues

I want to meet with those working in community development across Bristol in order to:

  1. Explore the future of community development work across the city;

  2. To understand how to bring the principles of community development into the provision and the review of the city’s services.

I come from a community development background and I know just how essential the personal and professional experience of people who are on the ground is to the city. We’ve made a commitment to tackling deprivation, reducing inequality, building communities, building resilience and reducing vulnerability by reducing people’s dependence on public services. The solutions to this challenge are going to be found amongst those who work in community development.

The priorities for our city are tackling hunger, building communities (not just houses), reducing education inequality, improving financial literacy and parenting skills, upping political engagement and a sense of self-determination and sourcing city leaders from a wider range of communities. I would like to talk to community development workers about the role they play collectively across the whole city to work towards these goals.

I have therefore arranged to meet at City Hall with those who work day-to-day with the people of Bristol: housing officers, support workers, community and youth workers, PCSOs, Beat Officers, social workers, community educators and employment workers from the public and voluntary sectors. I hope that you can attend.

Friday 29th September 10pm, City Hall

Booking is essential
