Agenda for NAWRA in Greenwich.

Following GMWRAGs post about the notes from the Salford meeting we now have further information about the Greenwich NAWRA meeting agenda.

Date: Friday the 7th of June 2019
Time: 10.00 – 16.00 (registration from 9.30)
Location: Queen Anne Building, Old Royal Naval College, King William Walk, London SE10 9NN (number 2 on the Greenwich University campus map)

The guest speaker will be Marsha De Cordova MP, Shadow Minister (Work and Pensions, Disabled People)  

There will be participatory workshops on how to claim universal credit, procedures to identify vulnerable clients, recent benefit changes for pensioners and the White Paper Commission on Social Security.

They will also hear about using judicial review to resolve welfare rights issues without going to court and there will be a presentation from Policy in Practice on how data analysis can be used to design better support.

The full agenda, along with details of travel, accommodation and social evening is now available.

NAWRA meetings are only open to members. There’s no need to book a place. Please let NAWRA know if you have any accessibility needs.

GMWRAG is especially pleased to Marsha De Cordova as the guest speaker as we have had the opportunity to hear her in person in the past 12 months and found her both refreshing and inspirational. She also has a background in benefits advice.

Details of the first post Brexit NAWRA meeting.

There was a point in time when GMWRAG was very good at publicising NAWRA meetings. We even had a countdown on the site. That was superseded by our more recent “rubbish at publicising NAWRA meetings” period, which we now hope to bring to an end.

So, a quick reminder. NAWRA holds quarterly meetings around the country and include speakers, workshops and a range of networking and professional development opportunities.

The next meeting will be hosted by Glasgow Welfare Rights Service and will take place on Friday the 2nd of September 2016 at Renfield St Stephens Centre260 Bath Street, Glasgow G2 4JP. You must be a member of NAWRA to attend the meeting. If you are not already a member, find out more about joining.

More information will be circulated to members soon. GMWRAG has made a note and pasted it to our face to remind us that we probably need to let you know when that information is available. Notes from the Greenwich meeting are already available in the members area.
