Powys Third Sector Service Provider Forum and the Powys Social Value Forum

Both Fora will be having their first meetings of 2018 on Monday 22 January 2018 at Cefn Lea Conference Centre, Dolfor, Newtown.

Third Sector Service Provider Forum (9.30am- 1.00pm)

This meeting is open to all voluntary organisations and community groups. Even if you have not attended the Service Provider Forum before, the briefing session about Data Protection Changes and GDPT will be a useful opportunity to learn about these issues and how they will affect how your organisation needs to handle the personal information of your clients or service users.

· Data Protection and GDPT - This session will provide a summary of the implications of new data protection legislation & regulation for third sector organisations.

· Social Services in Powys - This will be a facilitated conversation with senior managers and cabinet members from Powys County Council regarding social services in the county, and will provide attendees the opportunity to discuss issues

Inaugural meeting of the Powys Social Value Forum (2.00pm - 4.00pm)

This is a new forum of Powys' Regional Partnership Board that seeks to consider new ways of delivering services and has a particular commitment to social enterprise, co-production, co-operatives and user-led enterprises. The meeting is not just for voluntary organisations and community groups; your clients, service users and citizens are all welcome to attend as are members of local Public sector organisations and services.

· What do we know & what needs fixing? - This session will provide a summary of the Area Plan being developed for Powys and the emerging priorities in it.

· New ways of doing things - This session will allow consideration of establishing new, social value delivery methods to meet needs evidenced within the Area Plan.
