Recognising, Understanding and Enhancing Third Sector Resilience

ADVICE FAIR                    

The Advice Fair is a regular feature of the annual Big Event and it is always popular and valuable. This year was no different!

The Advice Fair is an opportunity to share information and sources of support, and to build new connections among stall holders and other Big Event participants.

At the Big Event 2016, there were stalls from 27 organisations, from the voluntary and community sector, the public sector, and local businesses. Stall holders shared information about the services and support they can offer to one another, and explained the projects, initiatives and partnerships in which they are engaged.  

As always, the Advice Fair was a great place to spark innovative ideas, learn from and with each other, and to build networks, collaborative opportunities and social capital! Ingredients to help enhance resilience, some might say!
