Our CEO, Clare Wightman, will be a keynote speaker on Tuesday 6 February when national innovation foundation Nesta and social impact lab OSCA bring together practitioners, policy makers, thinkers and funders in London to launch the Good Help report.
Major public service challenges – such as in social care, youth unemployment and long-term health conditions – require people to take action themselves. But many public services fail to work with people’s own sense of purpose and undermine rather than develop the confidence the need to do it.
Good Help explores great examples of how good services give people more control of their lives. It describes Grapevine helping others achieve their own personal goals by connecting them with people across the community.
You can join the debate by viewing the live stream of the event at www.nesta.org.uk from 6pm, and by using the hashtag #Good&badhelp on Twitter.
