Networking event – sources of help and support

The networking event being organised by Kings Heath Residents’ Forum on 7 October 2017 will give local people the chance to find out about organisations offering advice, help and support in the area. Most of the spaces for organisations have already been filled although there are still a few available.

Among the first to confirm attendance was Age UK which provides help for older people. The range of advice and support includes information on the benefits individuals are entitled to, how to find help at home and guidance  on health conditions. If you, an elderly friend or relative needs help or support, Age UK representatives will be on hand to explain what the organisation does.

Members of Moseley and Kings Heath Shed will also be at the event, explaining what the organisation does and how older men and women in the area can join in the activities. The Shed itself, in Kings Heath Park, is a fully equipped workshop providing the tools needed for woodwork, metal-work and working with glass. Again, representatives will be at the networking day to explain how people can benefit from taking part in the Shed’s activities.

The event will also include youth groups, fitness groups, the Police and local Councillors.

Networking event – information for groups wanting to take part

There are still a few tables available for community groups wanting to take part in the Kings Heath Residents’ Forum networking event on 7 October 2017. However, the number of spaces is limited so interested groups need to apply by email within the next week.

The intention is to provide an opportunity for groups that provide information and support about financial issues, personal safety, social and sports activities for young people and older residents an opportunity to talk to local people.

There will be no charge for groups taking part.

If you represent a group that you think would fit into the day, please send an email with details of the group to katherinewilcox@btinternet.com A decision on the final list of participating groups will be made within two weeks and everybody who has applied for a table will be told the result by email.
