Keeping Faith in Times of Social Security Policy Reform.
11th September 10am - 1pm
Venue: White River Hotel, Toomebridge, County Antrim:
How will it impact on the work that you do and the services that you provide?
Many people working with faith based groups believe that there is a moral obligation on them to address issues of Social Justice within the community. We believe that the reform of social security policy in NI will place added pressure on groups who work to alleviate the impacts of poverty and disadvantage.
RCN’s Rural Enabler Programme and CCWA are hosting a half day workshop providing food for thought on the Social Security Policy Reforms and their potential impact on the most vulnerable in rural communities.
It is recognised that many churches and faith-based groups provide essential services to those who are most marginalised and most vulnerable. This event will inform churches, clergy, communities and lay people of the changes which are being brought forward and will hope to ensure that those providing essential support to the most vulnerable groups have a space to discuss and debate these impacts.
Speakers include representatives from the faith sector, Northern Ireland Housing Executive and the Law Centre.
