About this event

This event is hosted by Watch Community Centre

WATCH Community Centre supports and seeks to involve people facing disadvantage, social exclusion, and deprivation. There is a focus on empowering people from minority groups and those who live in socially or linguistically isolated communities. Through demand- led support and training WATCH create opportunities for local residents building a happier, healthier and fairer community.

Join us in Coventry 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
  • 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.”
