Three third sector organisations are inviting attendees to register for their forthcoming ‘Community Partnership Conference’ which will be held in Wasps Creative Academy, Inverness, on Wednesday 8th November.
The conference, a joint venture between Highland Hospice, Highland Third Sector Interface and Connecting Carers, supports the delivery of health and social care across the Highland region and promotes partnership working across all sectors.
Harry Tedstone, Community Engagement Officer for the Hospice said, “One of the Hospice’s key priorities is the delivery of health and social care across the region, and we are delighted to be working alongside other organisations to explore how we can work better together.”
“Our conference has many great guest speakers, and through discussion we will explore the barriers to working in partnership, propose solutions to overcome these challenges and consider the priorities in setting a pathway to achieving such solutions.”
“We are keen that all organisations in attendance are listened to, not lectured at – and are especially keen to encourage delegates from more rural and remote community-led groups. We may even be able to help such groups with their travel and accommodation requirements.”
Speakers on the day include Professor Tony Chapman, Director of Research and Professorial Fellow, Policy & Practice, St. Chad's College, Durham University, Shona Sinclair, Director, SKS Scotland CIC, Jo-Ann Forde, Chief Officer, Skye and Lochalsh Council for Voluntary Organisations, Ian Thomson, Head of Service: Quality Assurance, Adult Social Care, NHS Highland, David Allen, Deputy Director, Scottish Community Development Centre and Jennifer Baughan, Whole Family Well-being Programme Manager, The Highland Council.
