Old Oak and Park Royal Community Charrette

INVITATION

Old Oak and Park Royal Community Charrette
Saturday 5th December, 11am-4pm
@Harlesden Methodist Church, 25 High Street, London NW10 4NE

 

The Community Charrette will be facilitated by JTP (architects and placemakers) in collaboration with London Tenants Federation, Just Space and University College London.

Through workshops and hands-on planning groups we will discuss key issues in relation to the development of Old Oak and Park Royal including how to shape a future strategy for community participation over the next 20/30 years to ensure “opportunity for all”. A key aim will be to enable the community to better and more positively respond to the forthcoming Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation Local Plan consultations.

A Charrette involves community members and stakeholders collaborating with professionals in a workshop setting to co-create plans and strategies for places. Charrettes are being promoted by Civic Voice, the national charity for Civic Societies in England, as a way of involving communities in shaping development processes in their areas.

Please RSVP as soon as you can to register for the event by contacting Eva Psychrani at grandunionalliance.eva@gmail.com or call/text 07784286809

A light lunch will be provided.

Charity and Social Enterprise Management Online course

Charity and social enterprise management comes to the capital

It’s been a summer of discontent for the third sector – from fundraising malpractice to the closure of Kids Company, press coverage of charities and social enterprises does all seem a bit negative. Whether or not the coverage is justified, it’s clear that the need for good management, governance and leadership has never been greater.

Against this background, Anglia Ruskin University are bringing their specialist course in Charity and Social Enterprise Management to London. The course is designed to help third sector people to develop their management and leadership capability, while also gaining a higher education qualification.

Benefits of this course include:
• Fully supported online learning.
• Optional workshops at ARU’s campus in central London in February and March.
• The opportunity to network, support and share experience with other charity and social enterprise managers.
• Study topics such as leadership & management, marketing, finance, social enterprise, HR and social impact.
• All assignments are focused on addressing real issues in the workplace, ensuring that the learner and the organisation both benefit.

Hundreds of third sector managers from all over the UK have already benefited from Anglia Ruskin’s Cert HE in Charity and Social Enterprise Management. Could you be next?

2015 Stay Well This Winter Campaign

Sobus is supporting the 2015 Stay Well This Winter campaign to help people, especially people aged over 65 or with long term conditions, prepare for winter and ward off common winter illnesses so they do not require a visit to the hospital.

There are a number of things you can do to prepare for the cold weather:

  • Protect against flu by getting the flu vaccination.
  • Those over 65, people with long-term health conditions, and pregnant women, can receive the jab for free from their GP or pharmacist.
  • Children aged 2-4 can get the flu vaccine for free from their GP in the form of a simple nasal spray while children in years 1 and 2 will be offered the free nasal spray at school.
  • It is important to keep warm in winter – both inside and outdoors, so if possible keep homes at least 18°C (65°F) warm and, at the first sign of illness, seek immediate advice and help from your pharmacist.
  • Take prescribed medicines as directed and pick up any prescription medicines before Christmas Eve.
  • If you do need help over the holiday period when your GP surgery or pharmacy is closed, call NHS 111 or visit www.nhs.uk.

The Stay Well This Winter campaign can help you and your family prepare for winter.
Visit www.staywellnwl.nhs.uk for more information.
