27 January 2022

This event is about meeting your local Social Prescribing Link Worker (SPLW) and looking at ways to work in closer partnership to support the community around you.

The event will start with an update and then move into two breakout rooms. The first will cover North Cambs ( Fenland, Huntingdonshire and Peterborough) and the second South/East Cambs ( City, South and East Cambridgeshire)

If your organisation is countywide, then we suggest you send two representatives.

What is a Social Prescribing Link Worker?

Social Prescribing Link Workers (SPLW’s) empower people to take control of their health and wellbeing. They take a holistic approach, connecting people to community groups and statutory services that offer practical and emotional support.

Event closing date 24th January 2022 and is open to any health and wellbeing community group in Cambridgeshire or Peterborough.

One thing all community groups have in common is the need to grow. This could be to keep up with the times, bring in new volunteers, do more activity, or support more individuals. Our community is vital in accomplishing this, and the way you talk and communicate with them matters.

This training talks through the principles of understanding your community and how to engage with them so that they understand your mission and aims, therefore leading to engagement on different levels. Should that be volunteering, donating, supporting or something else.

 

Outcome

You will come out of this training understanding;

  • Who do you want to engage with
  • How to communicate with them
  • How to develop that commincation so it leads to something else

 

Who is this for?

This training is for small community groups working in a small area who need community engagement so that they can grow and maintain activity.

It's for those with limited or no knowledge or understanding of marketing, communications, and stewardship. Preference will be given to Fenland groups.

 

Who is this not for

Groups whom have a marketing strategy or understanding of their audience. This training is about getting to grips with the basics.

Many people find it challenging to talk about mental health at work. Frontline staff may feel embarrassed about their suffering, while managers may not know what to say. Unfortunately, this can contribute to a vicious cycle as no one talks about it and the stigma and isolation grow.

In this workshop series, managers and supervisors will discover how to notice suffering in their team and start conversations safely. Through a straight-forward four-step process, attendees will learn how to :

  1. Notice suffering in their colleagues
  2. Identify and overcome the barriers to engaging team members
  3. Cultivate empathy for their distress
  4. Respond appropriately and effectively to alleviate their concerns

There are two sessions in the series, of two hours duration each.

  • Session One: How to notice suffering in the workplace and start conversations with your staff.
  • Session Two: How to overcome barriers to compassion, build empathy and alleviate suffering.

Upon registering for Session 1, delegates will automatically receive an invite for Session 2 in that series. The series of workshops will run twice each month:

 

Fri 19th November 10-12 pm (Session 1); Fri 26th Nov10-12 pm (Session 2)

Hot Topics for trustees: Hybrid working for your organisation

7 September 2021

from 12:00-13:00

at Online

The CIPD’s Embedding new ways of working post-pandemic report show that some 40% of employers said they expect more than half their workforce to work regularly from home after the pandemic has ended compared to 5% pre-pandemic.  The term hybrid is being widely used to describe a balance between home and workplace working.  But what does it really mean in terms of delivering what we are set up to do but in a way that benefits everyone involved?  How do we grasp the benefits but avoid creating disadvantages and inequality?   Come and join our discussion looking at the latest guidance and sharing ideas and approaches with other trustees and managers.

As a by-product of our work with groups we are able to feedback to local authorities and funders the kinds of challenges that voluntary sector organisations are currently facing. This helps them to think about what kind of support they need to be offering. We will not share specific organisations information or case studies unless you are happy to.

If you have specific queries or topics you would like to raise please send them to christine@cambridgecvs.org.uk. We will be sending joining instructions after you register.

Free to all voluntary sector groups in Cambridgeshire
