A conference and networking event that will bring together anyone who is passionate about their community from across Dorset is coming to Corfe Mullen.
The ‘Growing Hope in Our Communities’ event which is being held at St Nicholas Church will include talks and workshops, opportunities to network with other like-minded people and share ideas and best practice.
It is a collaboration between the ‘Growing Compassionate Communities’ charity and Dorset’s Douch Family Funeral Directors.
The free event will include lunch and Dame Annette Brooke will be opening proceedings that begin at 10am on Saturday 7 March.
Emma Regan from Douch Family Funeral Directors said: “This is a networking event for everyone and anyone who is passionate about their community and who wants to combat isolation.
“If you are a carer, already working in your community, working with marginalised groups or just interested in how you can get involved then please come along.
“We have three fantastic workshops discussing nutrition, keeping active and an exciting new project aimed at making hidden disabilities visible in the community.”
Peter Jones, chairman of Growing Compassionate Communities, added: “We’re inviting people to bring any literature or examples of the work they do in their communities to the event to add to our sharing table.”
