Where: The Barbican Centre

Come up to speed on the progress being made regionally and nationally at an event for London community organisations and policy makers which is being hosted by the Department for Communities and Local Government and London Civic Forum.

The event provides the opportunity to:

  • Hear a key note Speaker (To be confirmed) from the Department of Communities and Local Government outline the Local Government White Paper and explain how its proposals will empower communities.
  • Meet key organisations involved in supporting London's communities.
  • Attend master classes on key policy developments for Londoners, on how communities can help shape better, more responsive public services.
  • Join practical workshops to share good practice and effective community engagement.
  • Meet policy-makers and officers responsible for community engagement and empowerment in local, regional and central government.

The day is aimed at anyone involved in community engagement and empowerment in London - including the voluntary and community sectors, local government and policy makers - and anyone keen to find out more about how to shape decisions and have a say in how our public services are run.

Places are limited and will be issued on a first come first served basis.

The event is free, but to attend you will need to register by 1st December 2006.

Together We Can is the government's campaign to enable more people to have a say in the decisions that affect their communities and the public services they use.

The campaign is led by the Department for Communities and Local Government and 12 government departments are participating. See the Together We Can website for more information.
