Today we see a paradox that many services and social programmes that intend to help people fail to work with people's own sense of purpose and actually erode confidence rather than build it.
This event, in partnership with Osca, brought together practitioners, policymakers, thinkers and funders to explore how, together, we can build people's sense of purpose and confidence to take action, what we refer to as 'good help'.
To stimulate this debate we discussed the publication, which argues that if we want to tackle the crises we face today on issues such as obesity, mental health and in-work poverty, services must help people develop their own sense of purpose and become cultivators of confidence to act.
The event created a much needed platform for people to come together and explore what’s working and what’s needed. It provided an opportunity to share learning across traditional sectors - education, health, employment, justice, social services - and to focus on how services could be redesigned to give people more control of their lives.
Our hope is that, together, we can co-create a movement for good help. A movement rooted in the people and places that have been helping people for decades.
Registration opened at 17:30 with the event starting promptly at 18:00. The talks finished at 19:15 with networking drinks until 20:00.
