In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, services and organisations who support people experiencing multiple disadvantage have undergone substantial changes to the way that they work. Adapting to the fast and unprecedented demands of the crisis has enabled services to introduce more flexibility and reduce bureaucracy in their processes, with positive impacts reported both at an organisational level and on their service users.
As we begin to transition out of the crisis response period, an important question remains about what learning we can capture and build on to ensure the whole system generally becomes more flexible and “user friendly” in the longer term.
Join us for a free webinar that will explore the ways in which COVID-19 has influenced local services and interrogate what next in terms of system change. This webinar will include:
- A presentation by MEAM of the findings from their recent report – “Flexible responses during the Coronavirus crisis: Rapid evidence gathering”
- A presentation of the findings from Opportunity Nottingham’s evaluation report – “Covid-19: Impact on People who have Experienced Multiple Disadvantages”
- A look at how services across the system in Nottingham(shire) are adapting to the coronavirus pandemic
- A discussion on how these new and more flexible approaches may lead to longer term changes for the whole system
Audience: This webinar is aimed at professionals and volunteers from all sectors who may come across people who experience multiple disadvantage and are interested in opportunities to change the system to better serve them.
Attendance to this event is free of charge, but advance booking in essential as we have limited places available. The webinar will be hosted on Zoom, please ensure you are able to use this platform before registering your interest.
