1.30pm to 3.30pm

Changes to the welfare system in the UK and the recent economic downturn are presenting a great challenge to organisations who work with and provide services for those affected by the reforms. This seminar will bring together representatives from local  authorities, housing associations and other local organisations to discuss reducing the impact of welfare reform upon local people. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear about, and to participate in discussion about, mitigation strategies to inform future planning and prepare for further reforms.

The seminar will be chaired by Matt Ashton, Director of Public Health for Knowsley and will follow a panel question and answer format. There will be a mix of speakers from local authorities, housing associations, NHS organisations and third sector organisations including:

·         Geoff Bates – Researcher in Public Health Synthesis, Centre for Public Health, Liverpool John Moores University

·         Andy Kerr - Programme Delivery Manger (Mental Health) NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group

·         Peter Morgan - Deputy Chief Executive, Sefton Council

·         Mandy Upton - Founder, Community Spirit Wirral

·         Mike Withy - Wirral Council 

The seminar will take place from 1.30pm to 3.30pm with light buffet and refreshments served from 1pm.

If you would like to attend or have any queries, please contact Research in Focus at: ResearchInFocus@ljmu.ac.uk (including any dietary or access requirements) no later than Monday 23rd June.
