Our online event Building the New Normal (1st December, 2-4pm) will bring together faith communities and local authorities from around the UK to explore ways of developing and sustaining new partnerships to deliver solutions to local problems.
Following on from a local city-wide conference in May and in partnership with the William Temple Foundation, Derby’s faith communities are running a follow up online event.
Building the New Normal will bring together faith communities and local authorities from around the UK to explore ways of developing and sustaining new partnerships to deliver solutions to local problems.
The event will focus on "The Derby Way" and explore the good, the bad and the ugly of partnership working between faith organisations and local authorities and unpack the lessons learned from local exemplar projects.
It will be of interest to faith communities and public service providers such as local authorities, public health bodies and Police around the UK.
Speakers include Rt. Hon Stephen Timms MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Faith & Society, Rachel North, Deputy Chief Executive & Strategic Director, Communities and Place for Derby City Council and Professor Chris Baker, author of the Keeping the Faith: Partnerships between faith groups and local authorities during and beyond the pandemic.
The event aims to share valuable experience, impacts and best practice gained during the Covid emergency and contribute to the dialogue around developing ‘a new normal’ of national and local government working in partnership with faith groups.
The event is co-produced by Multi-Faith Centre, Derby Cathedral, Community Action Derby, Derby City Council and the William Temple Foundation.
The online event will be on Wednesday 1st December 2-4pm. To find out more and register for the event go to: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/building-on-the-new-normal-tickets-199277112207
