Funded by the Community Foundation, the latest North East Together event will explore how policy change happens and how leaders of social change can influence policy at a local, regional and national scale.

Ed Cox, Director of ippr north will discuss policy change processes, and talk about how leaders of social change can engage with their policy change work.

There will also be opportunity to join in with live policy-change conversations, hosted by Millfield House Foundation’s Strategic Partners, whose purpose is to create policy change on issues of inequality in the North East.

This will include:

  • VONNE – hosting a conversation on the changing nature of public services

  • Regional Refugee Forum – hosting a conversation on refugee policy in the NE, and alliances with other organisations

The event is free, but registration is essential.
