Wolverhampton’s Guns, Knives & Gangs Conference 2012


Wolverhampton Citizens for Change (WCFC) Conference

Saturday 24th March 2012

I am very pleased to invite you to our second conference which will be held on Saturday 24 March 2012 from 12.00 noon – 6.00 pm at The Connaught Hotel, Tettenhall Road, Wolverhampton WV1 4S4.

The key theme of the conference is Guns, Knives & Gangs; Responding to the consequences: Making the WCFC strands work.

Building on the success of the inaugural conference, which resulted in a total of 24 delegates indicating an interest in joining WCFC, this will be delivered through a variety of formats including presentations, workshops and debate. We anticipate this to be an exciting, stimulating and challenging conference which will give attendees the opportunity to contribute to and influence the future activities of WCFC.

The conference will draw on the experience from Keynote Speaker Emeka Egbuonu, writer and youth worker for the Crib Youth Project who grew up in Hackney and is the founder of Consequences, a programme aimed at giving 13-19 year olds the confidence and skills to avoid getting involved with gangs; or help them to exist gangs.

This will be an excellent opportunity to become inspired and invigorated to contribute to the work of WCFC.

Enclosed with this letter is a booking form and information about the four strands to assist you in making a decision about which workshop to attend.

I sincerely hope you will be able to attend and request that you complete and return the booking form by Wednesday 14 March 2012.

To book a place email the booking form to: wolverhamptoncitizensforchange@live.co.uk

Yours sincerely

Joseph Jackson

Chair –  Wolverhampton Citizens For Change (WCFC)
