Stratford District Community Action Network (CAN)

on Wednesday 28th Feb, 2018 at 9:45am
WCAVA’s Community Action Networks provide an opportunity for voluntary and community and not for profit organisations to stay informed about relevant local and national issues and to share good practice.

The theme of this Community Action Network (CAN) is Community Engagement- What’s working well. Our host, Compton Verney will be sharing their learning about successful engagements as part of their Heritage Lottery funding; Escape Arts will be talking about Creative Engagement; Rachel Key Freelance Partnerships Manager will be talking about using Social Media to engage and NHS Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust will be letting us know about how we can use story telling for engagement.

You will have the opportunity to share information about what’s working well with community engagement and to network over lunch

If you have anything you would like raised by any of our speakers, or additional information on, please contact us beforehand.
