Third Sector Summit: whose powerhouse is it anyway?
A free-to-attend event for people from the third sector and wider civil society to share ideas and learn about:
The opportunities and risks posed to civil society organisations by devolution and the Northern Powerhouse agenda
How to engage with new structures such as combined authorities and metro-mayors
New campaigns and movements for a fairer North
This event is particularly aimed at representatives from third sector organisations and wider civil society that operate in the North of England as well as those from the public and private sector with an interest in civil society.
IPPR North invites you to attend an all-day summit on civil society and the Northern Powerhouse. Taking place in Newcastle on 30th March, we will bring together a wide range of people from third sector and wider civil society in the North of England, in order to discuss what the Northern Powerhouse and the devolution agenda means for them, and how they can adapt to a changing landscape, in order to help build a more progressive and inclusive North.
We will also be showcasing headline results from the Third Sector Trends study, run by Professor Tony Chapman at Durham University. This landmark study is the first time that data has been collected on the state of the voluntary sector across the whole of the North of England.
Speakers will include:
- Sara Bryson, Citizens NE
- Professor Tony Chapman, Durham University
- Ed Cox, IPPR North
- Rhodri Davies, CAF
- Jane Hartley, VONNE
- Eve Holt, DivaManc
- Simone Roche, Northern Powerwomen
