It’s been a busy June for our Partnership Engagement Team (PET) who’ve been on the go, sharing our vision alongside some other great charities looking to impact children and families facing disadvantage. A huge thank you to Christians Against Poverty for inviting us to be a part of the CAP United Conference in Edinburgh, Taunton, Woking, London, Peterborough, Leeds and Blackburn – it’s been inspiring to stand alongside you and hear about the amazing work CAP is doing to end poverty.
We’ve also been in Sunderland in support of the Connect Network, which was established to forge strong connections between churches and communities across the city. The Connect Conference was an opportunity for churches to show statutory services how they work in the community to help tackle some of the challenging issues many people face in Sunderland.
At Kids Matter, we fully understand the value of working in partnership and know that if we want to transform society we need to work together; we appreciate all those who stopped to hear more about our mission to reduce the impact of poverty on children through community-based programmes. Our Partnerships Team shared some of their favourite moments from their days out and about:
It’s been a busy day for us in Edinburgh – attending the Christians Against Poverty UK United Conference, and meeting up with Sarah Johnson from Edinburgh City Mission as we begin to discuss working with them. – Carol, Kids Matter
We have been working with young people and have recently realised we need to work with parents too. – Junction 12 Youth Project
