Charities invited to Norwich social justice conference
Churches and Christian charities across Norfolk are being invited to take part in a Norwich conference on social justice in January.
A conference on social justice for faith and secular charities in the Greater Norwich area is to be held at The King’s Centre, Norwich on Monday, January 29.
The introductory speakers are The Bishop of East Anglia, The Bishop of Lynn and Alan Waters, leader of Norwich City Council. In addition there are eight well-known local speakers who will give brief inputs on the major issues facing the disadvantaged in different areas of social deprivation. Refreshments and lunch will be provided and conference papers are being produced.
In outline, the morning is intended to allow delegates to meet one another, become better informed about the situation in Norwich and learn about the main issues facing disadvantaged people living in the area.
The afternoon will be devoted mainly to group discussion at which practical solutions are sought to improve the quality of support available. Delegates will be asked to explore areas for greater co-operation amongst their charities and undertake to carry out some follow-up activity after the conference.
Attendance for delegates will be free and it is suggested that each participating charity sends two delegates to provide mutual support after the day is over. However, single applications will be accepted. Invitations will be sent out during September and applications will be accepted on a “first come, first served” basis.
People are asked to register and the event is free. Lunch is provided. The event is sponsored by Living Wage Norwich
