Compassion and dignity: taking care of wellbeing in a food bank

About this Event

You’re invited to The Trussell Trust’s Regional Forum this autumn – ‘Compassion & dignity: taking care of wellbeing in a food bank’.

The forums will include practical training focused on the topics you care about. Through the State of Provision, the Rolling Roadshows, and conversations with your Area Managers, you’ve told us what you feel you need training on, and we aim to deliver the resources you need with these forums.

The main focus this year will be mental health, with sessions delivered by our partners at Mental Health UK to help you look after not only your own mental health but that of your food bank volunteers and those people who use your food bank.

Up to three representatives from your food bank can attend a forum, and then go back and share their learnings with the rest of your team. If you have more than three people from your food bank who would like to attend, please express your interest on the booking form. If there is space available for more people to attend, we’ll let you know closer to the event.

The forum begins at 9.30am with coffee and registration, with main sessions running between 10.00 and 16.00. Please see the outline agenda below (full agenda to follow before the event);
