Safeguarding, Neighbourhood Renewal & the Big Society

Find the full listings of events during Inter Faith Week (20th – 26th November) at the IFW website, but here’s two which are of particular interest to us at LBFN, bringing local religious groups together with the public sector.

Faiths Together in Lambeth and the Lambeth Safeguarding Board have got together to present Safe Activities and Safe Environments for Children on Monday 21st November at 5.30pm.  Download the flyer here to find registration details – the evening includes a hot buffet and you will be particularly welcome if you live or work in Lambeth.

Steve Miller and Karen Walkden shared their expertise with us on this subject last year and introduced us to the Safe Network‘s materials.

The next evening (22nd November), in Battersea, the Wandsworth Community Empowerment Network celebrate 10 years of churches, mosques & temples working together to make sure that high quality public services reach the people who depend on them most – the theme is From Neighbourhood Renewal to the Big Society?  Download the invitation here.  People with an interest in co-production (our May meeting touched on this) will enjoy this event, which is open to locals and visitors alike.

The guest speaker is Lord Maurice Glasman and will include a lively discussion on the future of social policy and community empowerment – plus plenty of good food!  Download in an invitation here and register here.
