Supporting those who need it most

October 06 2011
The Crisis Welfare Network comes to the West Midlands


The Crisis Welfare Network focuses on investigating how government welfare to work programmes and strategies are supporting vulnerable people to engage and sustain in employment and training.

A series of events to discuss this highly topical issue are taking place across the country, and will be coming to Stoke-on-Trent on Friday, 30 September, with an appearance from local MP Tristram Hunt.

The seminar event will focus upon the current proposals set out the by coalition Government and how they intend to support people who are furthest from the labour market into suitable - and, most importantly, sustainable - employment.

The event takes place at The Bridge Centre, Stoke-on-Trent and is in partnership with Brighter Futures, a social community housing organisation that enables vulnerable people to live independent and fulfilled lives. Speakers will include representatives from Stoke Citizen’s Advice Bureau, staff from Brighter Futures and the Crisis Welfare Network, as well as the keynote speech from Tristram Hunt.

The event will also allow you to voice your opinions on what needs to be done and to reflect upon the current proposals, giving senior officials a better understanding of regional and national views “from the ground”.
