“Enhancing Practice, Understanding Poverty; A Guildford Perspective”
Friday 18th September – St Saviour’s Church, Guildford
Organised by Guildford Advice Services, this free event is aimed at “grassroots” volunteers working in the Guildford area supporting clients who are experiencing hardship. There is also considerable change on the horizon and in order to help us all support the individuals and families we work with, to the very best of our ability, we need to be aware of these changes and their implications.
