Cold Weather Planning Workshop - Wednesday 16th September

Aug 21, 2015

Somerset Community Foundation is working in partnership with Engage to help smaller community groups develop ways to mitigate against the potential effects of severely cold weather on their service users and delivery.

We will be facilitating a free workshop from 9.15am to 1pm on Wednesday 16 September 2015 at Deane House, Belvedere Road, Taunton; to look at the impact of cold weather on your members or beneficiaries; your ability to deliver services;, and to help you identify ways to minimise these risks.

 The workshop aims to give attendees a clear understanding of these impacts, how best to prepare prior to winter and how to put together a funding bid to cover additional costs where necessary.

This is a pilot scheme which, if successful, will be rolled out across Somerset in future years. We will be running a second workshop in spring 2016 to review the outcomes from this process.  

To book your place, please email by Monday 7th September with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Organisation name
  • Area you work
  • Age group you work with
  • The kind of services you deliver

There are limited places available and we want to ensure that a cross-section of groups take part.
