About this event

This event is hosted by Heeley Development Trust

For 21 years now, Heeley Trust has been working to improve public spaces, secure buildings and other assets for the community and deliver all kinds of projects for the people who live there and beyond.

Join us in Sheffield to:

  • Be inspired by members building a fairer society – through giving people a purpose, quality places to live and good health. You will hear and take away advice from the host organisation on how they’ve tackled a tricky issue in their community. This will involve a walking tour through Heeley Park, so please dress appropriately, and let us know of any accessibility issues.
  • Workshop: enterprise in adversity – explore the innovative techniques and the strategies community businesses have used to address what is often a key dilemma
  • Hear our national policy updates
  • Participate in a member-led problem solving session

Whether you’re just starting out or have years of experience, you’ll fit right in!

“One of the best things about Locality membership is access to a fantastic and widespread network of likeminded people and organisations who are all pushing boundaries and achieving.”
