MAKING SPACE - children's & youth workers
Rugby 6th October 2018
We are very excited about the forthcoming MAKING SPACE Conference that we’re holding in Rugby URC on October 6th. We appreciate that it’s a little way off (and we’ve all been quite busy focussing on the various events taking place in Nottingham in July!) however, we thought it would be useful for you to see the information with a view to sharing widely. We want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to join us for quite possibly the first event of its kind run by the C&YW team.
Booking is *OPEN* and we already have had a handful of places snapped up. Click HERE for the Eventbrite link to the event with further info, including a skeleton programme and tips for local hotels etc.
Below is a basic overview:
