In times of austerity, services, organisations and communities are being starved of the funds needed to survive and grow.  We cannot regenerate our communities by relying on large organisations who can, and do relocate according to their own financially driven agenda.

Instead we need a new approach to regeneration framed around co-operative values of self-help, participation, social responsibility and democratic accountability that is led by organisations that have a genuine long-term stake in our communities.

This event is an absolute must for all those interested in transforming the West Midlands region by reorganising local economies and supporting communities to help themselves.

Panel Speakers include:

Liam Byrne MP

Claire Campbell – UNISON Head of Local Government

Anna Birley – Coop Party Policy Officer & Labour/Coop Cabinet Member in Lambeth

Plus – nibbles & networking
