About this event

Get together with people like you
Our Power of Community network meetings give you the chance to develop your skills and be inspired by the work of others. They take place all around the country and are free for community members.

This event is hosted by The All Saints Action Network

All Saints Action Network’s (ASAN) vision is to improve the quality of life and create equal opportunities for everyone who lives and works in the All Saints area of Wolverhampton. ASAN delivers a range of community services and supports a diverse range of sustainable business enterprises, all of which create local jobs. Covering childcare, office spaces, football pitches, and training rooms, the community of All Saints can access a range of services with a social benefit.

Join us in Wolverhampton to

  • be inspired by members building a fairer society – through giving people a purpose, a good place to live and good health. You will hear from the host organisation and others about their current projects
  • co-create Keep it Local principles for Local Authorities to sign up to become Keep it Local ambassadors
  • feed into Locality’s 5-year strategic plan
  • participate in a member-led problem solving session.

You can also book a 10-minute one to one session with a member of our specialist advice team or Senior Management Team to get advice on a range of challenges of queries.
