Throughout the world, and locally in Hastings and St Leonards, there is increasing awareness of how the natural environment, and healthy and sustainable homes, benefits our health and quality of life. Environmental pollution has a significant impact on us all. This is a theme that has been identified by Hastings Community Network members as a hot topic and one they would like to explore further.
The October community network event will therefore focus on this theme with the morning offering opportunities to:
• Network and identify shared priorities with representatives from across the voluntary, community, independent and public sectors in Hastings and St Leonards
• Hear about local initiatives which aim to improve the environment, and as a result the health and wellbeing, of residents in Hastings and St Leonards
• Take part in themed conversations and make connections
• Receive updates on the outcomes of previous community network events.
This event is organised by Hastings Voluntary Action and East Sussex County Council. Registration will open at 9.30am for a 10.00am start, and the event will finish at 12.30pm with networking until 1.30pm
This is one of eight Locality Networks supporting community resilience across East Sussex.

This is a 2 hour course which can be emotional, a willingness to share with others is important. It is not necessary to reveal personal issues but the attendees must be willing to engage with exercises.
HVA will be holding our first Zoom HCN themed event – Learning From Lockdown - on Friday 18th September, 1pm-2.30pm. We would like to hear what you as an organisation has learnt from having to work in these challenging circumstances: Have you relied on volunteers to keep things running? Have you used the internet or social media to carry out your work, at home or in your normal place of work? What will you carry on doing going forward? To share your learning and to hear about new ways of working, please book yourself a place by following the link: www.hastingsvoluntaryaction.org.uk/events
The aim of this course is to be introduced to legislation regarding health and safety and appreciate the link between risk, assessment of risk and positive support for the individual.
