Event Description

WILCO partners of the University of Kent are holding a roundtable about social welfare innovation in Birmingham, one of the WILCO research sites in the UK.

This event provides an exciting opportunity for participants to learn about emerging findings from the research and offer their own insights on the issues raised, based on their knowledge, experience and expertise. The event will include contributions from the WILCO UK research team, Marie Nordfelt from the WILCO research team in Sweden, local academics from the University of Birmingham, and local public and third sector organisations . It should provide a timely and important discussion as local areas try and find solutions to social problems over the coming years in a time of budgetary constraints.

The roundtable will take place between 1 and 4pm on 17th September. Lunch will be provided from 12.30. We hope you are able to join us and welcome your contributions the discussion or please feel free to nominate a colleague.
