CBT Workshop and Third Sector Assembly
Central Bedfordshire Together is holding a joint workshop with the Third Sector Assembly on 26 January 2012.
It will be held in the Council Chamber, Priory House, Chicksands from 9.30am – 12.30pm.
The workshop will consider issues around localism, Open Public Services, and ‘encouraging communities to do more for themselves’.
As part of these discussions, it is important that we look at new ways of delivering services with local residents, and focus on how the capacity of the voluntary and community sector can be built and supported.
The objectives of the workshop are to explore how we can work together to meet the needs of local residents and communities. By the end of the workshop participants will have:
explored the opportunities for the voluntary and community sector to contribute to new ways of taking on the delivery of more services for local people;
identified the skills and capacity required to be put into place in order for this to happen; and
related and aligned these opportunities and requirements to the priorities and challenges facing Central Bedfordshire.
Facilitating the session will be Tim Whitworth, Senior Fellow, Capacity Building, at the Office for Public Management (OPM), an employee owned not-for-profit organisation working to improve social results.
He is the director of Empowering Leadership, the national flagship programme for local public sector leadership at Ashridge and of the Collaborative Leadership Programme in Cheshire and Warrington sub region.
