Putting Community Wellbeing at the Heart of Community Planning

Monday 30 November 2020 - 30/11/20

Online

‘Putting Community Wellbeing at the Heart of Community Planning’ is the inaugural virtual community conference of the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) Advisory Panel. The panel, as part of the Community Planning Partnership, wants to kick start its contribution to community planning in Belfast.

The conference will be opened by Minister for Communities Carál Ní Chuilín and will hear from key speakers from the Community Planning Partnership, including Belfast City Council Chief Executive Suzanne Wylie. The conference will also include speakers from other parts of the UK including Sophie Howe, the Future Generations Commissioner for Wales; giving attendees the opportunity to hear how others embed wellbeing into community planning.

There will also be an opportunity to discuss a range of key areas in workshops including, ‘Building a framework for decision making and accountability’, ‘Joint actions to deliver’, ‘Connecting sectors and citizens’ and the ‘Expectations of VCSE sectors on us’.

The conference will wrap up with a panel discussion and an opportunity to ask questions to a panel which will consist of:

• Grainia Long, Commissioner for Resilience

• John Tully, Director of City & Organisational Strategy

• Alastair Reed, Strategic Director of Place and Economy

• Ryan Black, Director of Neighbourhood Services

Irene Sherry, Chair of the VCSE Sectoral Advisory Panel said:

“We are delighted to be hosting this virtual conference for the sector in Belfast which will bring together key stakeholders to lay out the vision for community planning, connecting sectors and citizens, welcoming outside views and experiences from outside to help us build a framework for decision–making.

As a panel, we have been engaging with a range of stakeholders in recent months including the Minister for Communities and the various boards as part of the Community Planning Partnership to ensure that the voice of sector is heard, especially at this time as we move into another difficult period with a lockdown.”

The conference is open to anyone working in the voluntary, community and social enterprise sectors in Belfast. Numbers will be limited so we ask that only one person from each organisation attend.

Joining instructions for Zoom will be sent to attendees the night before the event.
