With the help of one or two guest speakers, we will facilitate a conversation on a topic of interest to you, before opening the floor for each of you to share any stories, best-practices, or challenges you’ve faced. It’s an opportunity for each of you to share what you’ve learnt with others, and to glean wisdom and ideas from each other as you learn about what other members around the country are up to.
You’re likely facing many of the same challenges; why not see if anyone else has a solution!
Emergency response is a vital part of the work of many faith-based organizations, who provide support before, during and after crises and emergencies. The extent of this support has been highlighted in recent times by the response to the pandemic, extreme weather and supporting refugees and people affected by the war in Ukraine. Many faith groups are also very involved in supporting people through the current cost of living crisis.
Come along to find out more about faith, emergency response and preparedness:
We are pleased to be joined by Jon Vangorph, Head of Partnerships at the Voluntary and Community Sector Emergencies Partnership. The Partnership is a partnership of local and national voluntary and community sector organisations, formed in response to learnings from several national crises in 2017. It was recognised that a more coordinated response amongst the voluntary and community sector was needed when responding to an emergency and the Emergencies Partnership is supporting the sector to make this a reality.
Come along and join the conversation!
