Windows of opportunity Workshop
We were pleased to welcome 33 representatives from a variety of local organisations to our Windows of Opportunity workshop on Tuesday 25th November at Lower Earley Baptist Church. The event focused on ways in which churches and faith groups could work more closely and effectively with local statutory agencies, and was attended by church youth & childrens workers, family workers, church leaders, members of Wokingham Borough Council and town councils.
The event included feedback and discussion about the outcome of working groups that have been meeting to discuss youth work, family support work and fostering & adoption. There were workshops to discuss next steps and we also heard from Adam Dyer - Leader of Yeovil Community Church - whose church has been delivering a 'Troubled Families' initiative called 'Yeovil4Family' in North Somerset.
Specific priorities were identified during the workshops and these are now being taken forward for further and specific action in early 2015.
