PAVO Annual Conference Report

PAVO 2016 Annual Conference and General Meeting

Tuesday 8th November 2016 10.00- 3.30pm      Programme

Prevention & Early Intervention - the Third Sector Role in Powys

Held at Cefn Lea Conference Centre, Dolfor, Newtown, Powys SY16 4AJ

It is widely acknowledged that third sector organisations and services have an essential role to play in prevention and early intervention. This conference explored how these services could be an integral part of a common direction in Powys.

Conversation groups focused on key prevention services, namely Befriending, Home Support, Community Co-ordinators, Children & Families, Practical Support, Mental Health & Wellbeing, Transport, Information/Advice/Advocacy, Community Delivery and Volunteering.

Keynote contributions were made from senior managers in Powys County Council and Powys Teaching Health Board.

After lunch there was an opportunity to influence matters that were currently the subject of public consultation or strategic engagement.

PAVO's AGM and Annual Conference provides a great opportunity to meet other colleagues in the sector, as well as partners in other sectors to share information and good practice.
