Speak Up is the country wide forum for the Community and Voluntary sector across East Sussex.
The Big Event is an opportunity for the Voluntary and Community Sector across East Sussex to come together and explore relevant developments and changes that affect us as a sector. The Big Event always includes an advice fair, conference presentations, and breakaway workshops or masterclasses.
"This year’s Big Event will be focusing on safeguarding and safety in our East Sussex communities. We will be highlighting key developments and issues, and exploring what our organisations can do to support victims, alleviate risks, and address dangerous behaviours."
Key topics to be covered:
Domestic violence and abuse
Protecting staff and clients
SpeakUp is administered by 3VA.
The aims of this Awareness workshop are for delegates to be introduced to legislation regarding equality and diversity and explore the concept of inclusion.
Based on feedback from previous events this Locality Network Event will focus on Social Prescribing, highlighting what’s working well and the many opportunities that new navigation services, and Health and Wellbeing Hubs, offer in Hastings and St Leonards.
Between January 11th – February 10th 2019 Hastings Borough Council will be consulting on their Budget and Corporate Plan and want to hear views from local community organisations. Hastings Community Network are pleased to collaborate with Hastings Borough Council to ensure that local voluntary and community groups have an opportunity to input.
