RVA is delighted to be co-hosting a free online Members’ Assembly with NCVO. This event is aimed at staff and trustees from NCVO members in and around Reading. Non-member organisations in the area are also welcome. Join us to:
- hear the latest on public policy and other current issues facing the sector, and how NCVO is working on these
- meet and network with other voluntary organisations in Reading and the surrounding area
- share best practice, experiences and ideas.
There will be two short presentations, followed by opportunities for discussion.
Rebalancing the relationship
Co-producing local knowledge to achieve change
Reading Voluntary Action and local voluntary and community sector organisations currently work with the University of Reading’s Participation Lab on community-led research into a range of issues, including the impact of covid-19 on health inequalities, the experience of growing up in Reading and how Reading town centre can be made more inclusive. Dr Sally Lloyd-Evans, Leader of the Participation Lab and Public Engagement with Community Research Fellow, joins us to discuss the benefits of co-producing local knowledge to achieve change in any community and locality.
