The Hope Church Winchester
The Middle Brook Centre

The aim of the conference is to explore economic disadvantage particularly amongst groups who

experience inequality.  We will be facilitating workshops which will see groups articulate their

changing circumstances as a result of increased cuts and then lead on to workshops and plenary

to explore community solutions.  It will run between 10am and 3pm with networking opportunities

either side of that as well as during the lunch (provided).  Our speakers are: 


Peter Beresford OBE, Prof of Social Policy, and Director of the Centre for Citizen Participation


Vivienne Hayes MBE, CEO of Women's Resource Centre


Jonathan Cheshire OBE, Chair of the Southampton Fairness Commission
