‘Drive to the Market – the marketisation of youth and community work’ – 26th and 27th April
In alliance with the ‘In Defence of Youth Work’ campaign, NCIA (National Coalition for Independent Action) is helping to mount two events to look critically at the implications and contradictions of the marketisation of youth and community work and the wider voluntary sector as a whole. The aim is to help us all to get our own heads around what’s going on, to give people and organisations a chance to share experiences of what is happening and how they are dealing with the new policy landscape.
Both events will run from 11am – 4pm. The first will be on April 26th in London at Garden Halls, Cartwright Gardens, WC1H 9EF.
The second will be on April 27th in Manchester at Greater Manchester Council for Voluntary Organisation’s St Thomas Conference Centre, Ardwick Green (close to the city centre and Piccadilly rail station).
Both seminars will be free though we’ll welcome donations towards refreshments (but bring your own lunch, this is not ACEVO!)
