Annual Conference 23-24 June 2008
The Social Firms UK Annual Conference
23-24 June 2008
"Employment & Skills For Disadvantaged People; Social Firms: A Solution"
The 2008 annual conference will be held at Reading University from 23-24 June. The conference is relevant for Social Firms, social enterprises and service providers who have an interest and active involvement in helping people furthest away from the labour market into employment and training opportunities. It is similarly relevant for policy makers and statutory agencies that wish to gain more of an understanding about Social Firms and social enterprises that tackle worklessness and achieve social inclusion.
The event will discuss the skills and employment needs of individuals with disabilities, mental health problems and other disadvantages such as being homeless or an ex-offender. The role of Social Firms and other types of work integration social enterprises will be introduced, good practice shared, and the task of how to grow this sector in order to meet large scale need will be debated.
The network experience of the residential Social Firms annual conference is second to none, so to get the best, come for both days. Accommodation and meals are included in the residential delegate rate. Meet Social Firm managers, social enterprise practitioners, service deliverers and support agencies all in one place (see who's booked so far by clicking on the list of delegates in the top right hand corner of this page). And we always encourage our speakers and workshop facilitators to stay for the entire event, so you'll have the experts on a wide variety of subjects, available to talk throughout. So join us!
