Financial Inclusion Workshop with the Money & Pensions Service

As part of the work Feeding Gloucestershire is supporting around greater Financial Inclusion in the County, we would like to invite you to an online workshop where you can hear what the Money & Pension Service can do to support the services you offer to your communities.

We are aware capacity is tight and so felt it would be useful to hear from an organisation that might be able ease some of these pressures.

The workshop will provide a brief overview of the work we are supporting in the County and then Paul Fox (South West rep for MaPS) will present the services they offer and how these might be useful for your organisation, there will also be time for questions

Gloucester Food Forum

Join us for a workshop which will look at how we can work together to create a sustainable food network for Gloucester.

Building a sustainable food network was one of the priority areas identified at Feeding Gloucestershire’s launch and we are inviting you to join us to explore how this can be achieved – we will look at how we can bring together strategic and policy priorities with practical community delivery, knowledge and experience – to identify key development areas and create an action plan that is reflective of the needs of Gloucester City and the organisations that support the city.

We will also have the opportunity to discuss Nourishing Gloucester – the food strategy developed for Gloucester City by the Gloucestershire Gateway Trust. We will look at what the strategy means in practical and policy terms and how it can be used to support the work of the Food Network

This event will be the first event in a series to shape this work and it will be of interest to all organisations who are working to support the city’s communities to access better, affordable, sustainable food.

In order to achieve this aim we will need to work collaboratively and we welcome everyone who has a stake in developing this network for Gloucester.

Light refreshments will be available during the workshop.
