What are the FACTS about cuts in Dorset?
What support is available to help your organisation?

A practical Conference in response to the cuts for voluntary and community
groups in Dorset.

On the 28th of February 2011 a county-wide voluntary and community sector
conference will be held to discuss how voluntary & community groups in
Dorset can react to, and survive, the government's spending cuts and
wide-ranging policy changes. Please find attached a 2 page conference
flyer with more information including full details of all workshops.

No matter the size of your voluntary or community organisation you should
be represented at this important conference if you are concerned about the
effects of these changes on your community. Hear high-level decision
makers explain what cuts will be made and question them on the impact of
these cuts:

· What impact will cuts have on communities in Dorset?
David Jenkins (DCC Chief Executive) and Angus Campbell (Leader of the
County Council)

· How will the Health Service in Dorset be affected? (provisional)

· What support is available for your organisation?
Georgina Morgan (Dorset Community Action)

This is a FREE conference with talks and discussions in the morning, a
networking lunch and a wide range of practical workshops in the afternoon.
The workshops will give you practical advice and support so you can
respond to these challenging times - workshops to help your organisation
take local action, lobby & influence decision-makers, generate income,
seek funding, properly assessing taking on public assets, ensure your
organisation is fit and how to better manage volunteers. See the second
page of the attached flyer (PDF file) for more detailed information.
