Strengthening Our Region Symposium.

strengthening our region banner

We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting a symposium on Thursday 29th November, where we will come together to unpack our recent Community Survey and work out how we can help the region become a more welcoming, inclusive and accepting place to work and live.

Please join us in a session of guided conversation and discussion as we explore the pathways to better integration in rural communities such as Dumfries and Galloway, and address the challenges which present themselves along the way.

The day begins at 10:30am with refreshments and registration, leading to a prompt 11am start. The event is expected to wrap up around 2pm although there may be the possibility of a training/discussion group afterwards if there is significant interest.

VENUE: Cairndale Hotel, English Street, DG1 2DF

DATE / TIME: Thursday 29th November / 10:30am – 2pm – Lunch will be provided.

*IMPORTANT* Please message to secure your place and advise of any dietary or accessibility requirements.

This event is free, but places are limited.

There’s still time to add your voice to the Community Survey!

Please encourage your friends and family to take part too. We want you to be completely honest so we can capture a true refection of the attitudes in our area.
