Canterbury District networking meeting

  • Horsebridge Centre 11 Horsebridge Road Whitstable, England, CT5 1AF United Kingdom (map)

Are you a charity, community group or social enterprise working in the Canterbury district and looking to make links with other organisations and to find out what is going on locally?
Come along to Red Zebra’s Canterbury District Networking Meeting on Tuesday 27th June from 2pm – 4pm at The Horsebridge Centre, 11 Horsebridge Road, Whitstable CT5 1AF.
At our last meeting we discussed engaging with young volunteers and one of the issues that came up was requests for student work experience placements. Training and education providers often ask for block placements for students in for example health and social care, nursing, social work or the police. Many groups find it difficult to accommodate these requests and as a result sometimes end up saying no.
However, we think it’s important to support these students and help them to become better practitioners by getting some first-hand experience of our sector, so we need to find ways of working with the colleges and universities to develop placements which work for us as well as for them and the students.
There will also be lots of time for informal networking and the opportunity to talk about your organisation and any news, developments or events you have coming up.

There is no fee for this event but donations towards the cost of refreshments are always welcome. Places are limited so if you’d like to attend please email to book your place.
