Tue, 07/07/2009

This event is being held at Old Trafford: Trafford Suite, Manchester on 7 July 2009. The role of the 3rd Sector is of key importance to the region in strengthening communities, growing enterprises and transforming public services. NWDAi has been working with our partners in the region, including Third Sectori networks, on the development of relationships with the sector to ensure that it can engage with the regional agenda. A number of activities have taken place to facilitate this including engaging the sector through consultation on the Regional Strategy, the development of a regional compact and research into how we should be working with the sector.
The aim of conference is to focus on moving this agenda forward; it will have an important role in guiding the development of the Regional Strategy and the actions of the NWDA and partners. It will provide an opportunity for us to feedback on the conclusion and recommendations of the research; and also launch the Regional Compact. There will be opportunities to discuss the role of the sector and the implementation of the research recommendations and the Compact.
The event will include speakers from the office of the Third Sector, SQW Consultants and a keynote address from the Commissioner for the Compact, Sir Bert Massie.
The Conference is aimed at all those with an interest in the future of the Sector in the Region, particularly those who support the development of the Sector at regional, sub regional and local levels in the Public and Third Sectors.
