Ipswich: Hosts Forum

June 30 @ 7:30 pm 9:15 pm

Organised by: Together for Ipswich

Venue: Burlington Baptist Church, London Road, Ipswich, IP1 2EZ

This is open not only to hosts and potential hosts, but also to those who are actively engaged in the support of Ukrainian refugees through Community Hubs and other church and community relationships.

During the evening we will celebrate your journey so far, and look at 

a) existing issues such as the role of the community hubs, access to services (education, employment, benefits, NHS etc), household expectations and agreements, avoiding dependence, and trauma indicators and responses.  

And 

b) we will be looking ahead to consider what (if anything) changes during the summer holidays (closure of some services, hosts being away from home etc) and, even more importantly, how we can most helpfully and robustly work with our guests towards the major challenges of the autumn and winter months (i.e. their employment and future housing).    

Please note:

Pre-booking is required by emailing info@togetherforipswich.uk

In your pre-booking email, please would you indicate whether or not you attended the (excellent) online trauma awareness workshop (15 June) mentioned in the email below.  This will help us plan as to how we can best either a) summarise or b) follow up on this event.

We would be pleased to hear from you of any specific issues or questions you would like us to include in our Hosts Forum evening together.
