Big Event 2012

Bridging the Gap between Policy Reforms and Practice

Held on Tuesday 13th March 2012, 9:40am - 2:30pm, Winter Gardens, Eastbourne
The Big Event 2012 was organised to give local organisations an opportunity to better understand recent national reforms, identify opportunities and engage in dialogue with both the public sector and other voluntary organisations. The conference speakers and round table workshops focused on two key areas: Health & Social Care and Welfare & Legal Aid. This was accompanied by an Advice Fair offering hands on support to local groups and information about free and low-cost services available. The event was attended by over 185 participants and received very positive feedback.
The event was organised by SpeakUp Forum, together with the CVS Partnership (which brings together 3 Councils for Voluntary Services in East Sussex - Hastings Voluntary Action, Rother Voluntary Action and 3VA).
