140303 flyer next event for pack v2

  1. 1. Children's Centres plus Libraries: a new fusion The REC Centre, Towcester Road, Far Cotton, Northampton NN4 8LG Thu 6 March 2014 Forthcoming events: 5 June 2014: Simply Connect: libraries breaking social isolation Public libraries role as safe, stigma-free places at the heart of communities is well- documented and often mentioned – but what opportunities does this offer to tackle social isolation? There are other assets libraries bring to the table. These include project management and engagement expertise, a track record of community involvement, and deep, ongoing customer insight. This one day conference will set the framework and showcase examples of great, innovative practice of libraries helping to break social isolation. “There is a clear link between loneliness and poor mental and physical health. A key element of the Government’s vision for social care … is to tackle loneliness and social isolation, supporting people to remain connected to their communities and to develop and maintain connections to their friends and family” (Department of Health, Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework 2013/14) Also coming up later in 2014:  The Pleasuredome Principle: libraries, health and wellness  Leaner still: libraries moving from process to people, from people to impact For all enquiries please contact: Jorge Solis Principal Librarian-Transformation 01604 366162 jsolis@northamptonshire.gov.uk www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/libraryasset
