Connect2016 – Book Now! - 29th November, Dumfries
Connect2016 workshops:
Early Years Forum
The third sector is a rich and diverse resource that can have a key role in shaping and delivering services which put the wellbeing of children and young people at the centre of organisational cultures.  
However, there are significant challenges that continue to prevent the full engagement of the third sector. The National Third Sector GIRFEC Project aims to support the third sector locally and nationally to address these. 
Dumfries and Galloway’s Third Sector Early Years Forum will be receiving support from the National GIRFEC Project over the coming year. 
This workshop will provide delegates with the opportunity to consider:
  • the production of a living action plan for the Forum
  • how best the third sector can be included in the design and delivery of new and tested services for children and families
  • the need for input at a strategic and planning level with the public sector
Other workshops:
  • Nuts and Bolts of Fundraising
