Keswick Hall Lecture: Kindness in the community

When it was launched in 2010, the Conservative government’s Big Society promised to give communities more powers, support charities and social enterprises, and encourage volunteerism. Within the year, however, the government was accused of using the policy to ‘dignify its cuts agenda’. 

At this roundtable discussion, Theos’ Paul Bickley, Tom Gaskin from The Missing Kind and Belfast peace activist Sandra Rutherford will discuss the difference that people can make in improving their own communities.

Free to attend, no booking required. For more information, email events@uea.ac.uk or call 01603 592130.

This event will be streamed live on the UEA website. Tune in from 6.30pm on Thursday 8 March, or watch the event recording on YouTube from the following week.
