Save The Date for CANCON24: Livin' La Vida Local

Save the date for Wakefield District’s Community Anchor Network Conference – CANCON 2024.

The Community Anchor Network (CAN) invites you join them to:

  • Celebrate the work of CAN to enable community-based organisations to be the best they can be
  • Reflect on the significant redevelopment of CAN and what this looks like
  • Look to the future of CAN as an integral part of the system to reduce health inequalities and empower residents in finding support for themselves

Community Anchors are trusted organisations that meet the needs of their local community, delivering activities, services and a host base for other groups and services such as a credit union and Citizens Advice. This means that local residents can easily access all sorts of support in one place –from tackling money concerns to finding friendship – and build confidence to continue this independently.

Hear from key note speakers and get involved in a Q&A to learn more. Register your place:

  • When: Wednesday 18 September, 9.30am to 1pm
  • Where: St Catherine’s Community Centre, Doncaster Road, Wakefield, WF1 5HL
  • Keep an eye out for announcement and a full agenda!

The conference is open to colleagues from the VCSE and public sectors.
