Steve Kendall has worked in economic and community development in Local Councils across the UK for 34 years. His work has directly influenced investment decisions that have helped crate over 9,000 joins and attracted almost £100 million in Government Grants and Area Support.
Steve's current work in Leicester centres on the Dementia Cafe. The Dementia Cafe was born in 2011 out of recognition of a need for newly diagnosed people and their families to have a chance for 'coffee, cake, and conversation'. They cafe set up with little funding and continue to receive no funding from statutory organsiations.
Voluntary Action LeicesterShire (VAL) was delighted that Steve held a workshop for local Leicester and Leicestershire VCS organsiations as part of our 2013 Future Focus conference.
Steve's workshop covered the story of the Dementia Cafe and their future, looked at what they view as the key points to their success, and discussed how these key tips might apply to other organisations.
While the 2013 Future Focus conference is now over, VAL runs trainings and workshops like Steve's year-round. If you'd like to learn more about training for your organisation, visit www.Valoneline.org.uk.
