‘Community Resilience in Times of Need’ sets the theme for the Annual Starter Packs Conference this year, jointly hosted by CRNS and Scottish Churches Housing Action (SCHA), an organisation that brings together 12 Christian denominations and organisations in Scotland all with a commitment to ending homelessness.
This is the 4th consecutive year that CRNS and SCHA have come together to facilitate another fantastic FREE learning and networking event aimed specifically, although not exclusively, at starter pack organisations and supporter projects. The event will take place on Thursday 29 August 2019 in Falkirk at Falkirk Trinity Church.
Each year the programme is structured in such a way as to enable a variety of starter pack organisations from throughout Scotland to come together, network, share knowledge and learn from each other whilst giving a platform to several of these to tell their story in more depth. Prior to lunch there will be a breakout session and in the afternoon we will have a speaker from the award winning CRNS Reuse Consortium, (using Scotland Excel Framework Contract). This keynote will highlight the benefits to recipients, positive impact on the planet and savings made for those LAs that have committed to changing the way that people in need are given access to the main household items, allowing them to move into a home or remain in their home. In addition, a coach from Crowdfund Scotland will also be presenting on this particular form of fund raising for organisations.
As previously mentioned there is no charge for the Starter Packs National Conference. Although the Conference is now full if you would like to be contacted in the event of a cancellation, please fill in the booking form and return by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to SCHA, 44 Hanover Street, Edinburgh EH2 2DR highlighting this. If you have any queries, e-mail SCHA on the same address or give them a call on 0131 477 4500.
