Event details

An Engagement Research Seminar co-hosted by the Third Sector Research Network (TSRN) and the Public Engagement with Research unit (PERu)

We are delighted to welcome Iane Chambers and Barbara Hancock from TWICS as guest speakers.

TWICS has been operating in Southampton for 16 years as a community development training organisation. Over that time it has been at the centre of collaborations between the voluntary, community and statutory sectors. In recent years, seismic changes in funding and government policy have profoundly altered the local voluntary and community landscape. This seminar will explore the impact of those changes on the voluntary sector in Southampton and TWICS in particular.

There will be opportunities for discussion and to network.

Chaired by: Professor Susan Halford, Head of the Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology; Co-Director of the Work Futures Research Centre; and Co-Director of the Web Science Institute.
