Description

On Friday 15th September 2017, the NACCOM Annual Conference is taking place at the Bridge Centre in Stoke on Trent. We'd love you to join us!



This is our annual opportunity to gather as a full network (now with over 50 member organisations) as well as other agencies and interested parties, to discuss the impact of the network's activities, to resource and support members in their work, and to identify and discuss the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the sector.

We are delighted this year to be joined by Estelle Worthington from Asylum Matters (read more here) and there will be a range of workshops on topics relevant for members, on night shelters, housing associations, developing outcomes and more...


Tickets are priced at £25.00 per person for Non-Members and £20.00 per person for Members. Want to find out more about membership? Visit here for details.

We also have reduced rates for people who are unwaged, and we have free spaces available for people with no recourse to public funds (2 free tickets per member organisation). To book these tickets please email office@naccom.org.uk.


Plan for the day

Friday 15th September 2017

Doors will be open from 9.30 for registration and refreshments.

The morning session will include the launch of our 2016-17 annual report, featuring in-depth analysis of this year's survey and exploring key opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.

We're also delighted to announce our guest speaker, Estelle Worthington from Asylum Matters (formerly Still Human Still Here and Regional Asylum Activism Projects).

More details on the morning session and key note speeches to follow.

There will be a wide range of workshops taking place during the day on topics such as:

* Running a Night Shelter*

* Working with Housing Associations*

*Sharing Stories and Developing Case Studies*

*Growing Your Project*

*Helping with Transition to Refugee Status*

Details of these and more workshops to come shortly!

Delegates will also hear an update from Sanctus St Marks, a NACCOM Member based in Stoke on Trent, and of course there will be plenty of time to network over a delicious lunch!

There will also be a market place area where attendees are invited to bring information about their work to be shared with other delegates. Please let us know on your booking form if this is something you would like to do.


After the main conference, we invite delegates to stay on for the 2017 Annual General Meeting where there will be space to hear more stories from across the network and Full Members are invited to vote in the election of Trustees. This part of the day is expected to conclude by 5.30pm. Please indicate on your booking form if you are able to stay for this short but important part of the day.


After the AGM, we will go somewhere local to eat together. We understand that travel plans may prohibit you from joining us for this part, but if you're able to stay a little later, please do! Please indicate on your booking form if this is something you might be interested in, with more details to follow.

We hope you will be able to join us for this exciting day of learning and sharing together!
