World Cafe Event - Cannock
VAST research project, in collaboration with the Creative Communities Unit of Staffordshire University
VAST are undertaking an important research project, in collaboration with the Creative Communities Unit of Staffordshire University. This aims to demonstrate the positive outcomes of voluntary and community sector health-related programmes and to highlight the important role that the sector plays in promoting health and wellbeing across Staffordshire. The research is an extension of a project carried out across Stoke-on-Trent and surrounding areas, earlier this year. Given the success of the initial project, they now aim to replicate the research, giving organisations across Staffordshire the opportunity to participate.
As part of this research they are running several World Cafe Events across Staffordshire. The event is open to all organisations with an interest in local health issues, and will give you an opportunity to:
- Meet members of other groups and exchange ideas and expertise
- Discuss future needs and development opportunities
- Think about the wider impact of voluntary and community activities on health
