The first ever East Suffolk Community Partnerships Annual Forum is being held virtually next month with a 5-day packed programme.
The Forum will take place virtually between 2 – 6 November and is aimed at representatives of businesses, voluntary organisations, community groups and public services to enabling better collaborative working in East Suffolk.
Delegates will have the opportunity to learn more about the priorities of the eight Community Partnerships and share their own knowledge and expertise to enable us all to work together for the benefit of our communities and businesses.
‘Bringing Ideas to Life’ is the name of this year’s event and will explore some of the issues facing our lives and identify how we can respond to them within our communities, businesses and organisations.
It will include talks from many great speakers, including Dominic Campbell from FutureGov, Cormac Russell from Asset Based Community Development and Kim Leadbetter from the Jo Cox Foundation.
Cllr Steve Gallant, Leader of East Suffolk Council and Chair of the East Suffolk Community Partnership Board, said: “This will be the first ever East Suffolk Community Partnerships Forum and whilst a virtual event is a little different than we had anticipated, it will still be a great event that brings together people, partners and organisations to look at how we can all work together to the benefit of our communities and businesses.
“We have a great record of partnership working in East Suffolk and this is just another opportunity to celebrate that and continue to build on it.”
The Forum is being supported by a wide range of organisations including the East of England LGA.
