Tony’s Focus Point: 16.4.14
What a busy period. Preparing for this years round of EU funded projects certainly requireas patience and good planning. Wish I had those skills.
SET4Work: The planning for the Dissemination Conference is just about there. The event will be at The Pierhead, just outside the Welsh Government. There is a good range of speakers, including me, but also key speakers from Agored Cymru, Welsh Government, 3SC, and CollegesWales. The day kicks off at 10:00 with an introduction from Russell George AM who has sponsored us.
For a Programme of the Conference go here
There are still places for Training organisations to put up a table, but we need to know by 28th April. There are also places in the audience for anyone interested in the SET4Work project and how it is a workable and effective way to get people into long term work. Agasin let us know if you want to come by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning us on 01686 629999
FUNDING APPLICATIONS IN EUROPE: We are looking at partnerships with over 18 new EU partners from 11 different EU countries. Some applications have already been submitted, and deadlines for others go from imminent to the end of the summer. The range of our projects are very wide. We have expertise in coordinating and managing EU funded projects, and are always seeking local partners to join us with their specific experience and knowledge. This year we are concentrating on Family Values. How are they changing in the current climate? What are the expectations of our youth? How are social and economic factors affecting people with compounding issues around homelessness, poverty, single-parenting, and opportunities for employment? If you or an organisation you know is interested in these topics please contact us.
STREET FAIR: Planning for this event is well underway. It is a chance for organisations from all sectors and self-help groups to show the public what they do, and hopefully attract support and maybe volunteers. We have had interest form national and local organisations, and small self-help groups. The event takes place on 7th June at Bear Lanes Shopping Centre in Newtown. Russell George AM will open the day at around 10:00.
Tables are still available to this open-to-the-public event. Just contact Sionna 01686 629999 or email her at email@example.com.
