From Neighbourhood Renewal to Big Society, from mental illness to hate crime, from 9/11 to integration, PCTs to CCGs, Stop & Search to SNPs, interfaith walks & WhatsApp groups – such a lot has changed!
Join us tomorrow evening 5.30pm-7.30pm as we chart the massive contribution that local gurdwaras, synagogues, mosques, temples and churches have made to the wider community and the key contribution of local multifaith networks and forums working in partnership with councils, the NHS, local police & fire services.
Add your significant dates to our timeline (it will be posted online soon), hear from faith forums & public sector officers across the capital and be part of an engaging debate on the current context.
With us will be practitioners from Kensington & Chelsea, Harrow, Wandsworth, Hounslow, Islington, Tower Hamlets, Richmond, Lambeth, Havering, Westminster, Southwark, Barking & Dagenham, Redbridge, Enfield, Croydon, Barnet & the City, with borough London Resilience managers and local police officers.
If you plan to join us & haven’t yet confirmed your place, email asap. We are meeting at Voluntary Action Islington, 200a Pentonville Road (near the junction with Killick St, next to Cycle Surgery), N1 9JP (King’s Cross tube).
As well as news from key faith forums across the capital, we’ll hear from:
- Malik Gul, WCEN
- Yvette Ellis, VAI
- Steve Miller, FbRN
- Matt Scott, London Voluntary Service Council
and hear an update on LBFN’s social labs:
- safety & security (with London Resilience & Ecclesiastical Insurance)
- health & wellbeing
- European links
There will be plenty of time to share news and ideas and a simple vegetarian meal will be served.
Look forward to seeing you there!
