About this event

Local Trust recognises the important contribution that LTOs and people employed on behalf of Big Local partnerships make to the work we support.

To date our resident-led focus has meant we concentrated on building the capacity of residents in Big Local partnerships, but we know that by supporting the wider stakeholders across Big Local areas, we can together achieve even more. Building on our previous Worker & LTO events we are holding a 1-day conference to explore how Local Trust, workers and LTOs can all work together more effectively in support of Big Local partnerships.

A finalised agenda is shown below.

Because the event is focusing on the worker and LTO relationships in a Big Local area, we offered a maximum of one space per area for partnership members, to make sure at least half of the workshop attendees are workers or from an LTO.
