Community Justice Forum
When: 10am to 12 Noon, Wednesday 02 October 2019 Where: Caledonia House, Pentland Park, Saltire Centre, Glenrothes, KY6 2AL This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action
At this month's Community Justice Forum we’ve selected two topical items to be discussed at the Forum; Hate Crime (National Hate Crime Week is 12 - 19 October) and Poverty (Scottish Challenge Poverty Week is 7 - 13 October). Both themes are intrinsically linked to community and social justice and overlap significantly with the work of third sector organisations. We welcome attendees whose work links directly or indirectly with either of these themes. As always, there’ll be ample time for networking and questions.
Nina Munday, Manager of Fife Centre for Equalities, will speak about the impact of hate crime on Fife’s communities. Also, she will advise how third sector partners can identify and report hate crime through the work they’re doing each day with some of Fife’s most vulnerable citizens.
We’ll also hear from Lauren Bennett from Fife Council. Lauren will talk us through the Community Planning Partnership’s approach to tackling poverty, both strategically and operationally. As you’ll be aware, tackling poverty is a key aim of the Plan4Fife and third sector organisations play a significant role in delivering the outcomes contained within the Plan.
have an opportunity to share their thoughts around topics within Community Justice that affect them.
Our forum is open to any third sector organisation working within Fife. The forum is a fantastic space for third sector colleagues to come along and hear about key developments within community justice in Fife and Nationally, discuss significant issues and network with other third sector organisations. *We allow a number of places to public sector colleagues too (get in touch for more information)
