Slough Great Winter Get Together event for partners

Please do join us, DWP and Everyone Active for The Slough Great Winter Get Together event for partners at The Centre in Farnham Road on Friday 27 January (4-8pm) and Saturday 28 January (9am-12noon).

We hope you find this a great opportunity to reach out to more residents in January – a time we know through the Poverty Forum and our work with yourselves that is going to be very challenging for many.

This is a chance for residents to engage with services and find out what support there is around debt and welfare, health and wellbeing, employment and training.

Please do let me know ASAP if you can join us so I can get some posters out listing the partners attending in time for the New Year.

Please complete the sign up form here by Wednesday 21 December.
