We are delighted to announce new courses and events for 2017

 

NETWORK EVENTS


Thursday 12th October - CVS, Shaddongate Resource Centre, Carlisle

Friday 20th October - The Oval, Salterbeck, Workington

Wednesday 25th October - The Forum, Barrow


Each event will run between 10.00am and 12.00pm with set-up from 9.30am.

 

This is a good opportunity to learn more about advice provision across your District, to meet staff and volunteers who are providing these invaluable services and find out how you can work with them. Our Network Events are also an ideal way of sharing good practice.

 

We know you have little time to spare in your working week, which is why these events will be for a few hours at the beginning of the day. There will be time for networking and staff from DWP will also be doing a presentation and taking questions on Universal Credit.

 

You may wish to bring along a display, leaflets, pull up banners etc, however this is optional. Please use your own judgement given the short duration of the event. Tables will be allocated on a “first come, first served” basis when booking your place. Set-up will be from 9.30am on the day. Tea and coffee will be provided on arrival. Please note our Network Events are for advice and support organisations and will not be open to the public.

 

To reserve you place and book a space for your stall, please complete this booking form and return it to Maria Hewitt at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by Friday 29 September. Please note that these are likely to be popular events and places will be limited and must be booked.

 

Places are FREE to network members. We are a charity so any donations towards attendance and refreshments would be welcome. Any income will go back into the training budget to provide more courses and network events. Cheques made payable to Cumbria Advice Network. A donation box will be available on the day.

 

We look forward to seeing you there!
