Breakout Session 1 - Community Resilience

Led by CVS Development Officer Natalie McGregor, this session is aimed at groups providing services to individuals and families facing poverty. 

We all recognise that everyone, no matter where they live, should have the chance of a healthy and secure life; however, many are struggling to meet their needs. 

VCFS organisations may not be able to resolve poverty, but we help people when they are facing insecurity and uncertainty due to finances. This session will bring together those with a common interest and discuss how we can work collectively and be more effective to deliver resilient services and support those who need to access the services.

This session builds on conversations that have happened through the CVS Community Transport, Food Distribution and Information and Advice Networks.

Breakout Session 2 – Organisation Resilience

Led by CVS Development Officer Aoife Middlemass, this session is aimed at Trustees and senior management. 

Over the last 12 months, organisational governance and resilience have never been more important. Being able to weather change in an everchanging and sometimes turbulent environment is key to the sustainability of your organisation. We'll take the lessons we all have learnt during the national crisis and make this an opportunity for our community to grow stronger together. 

CVS will also be showcasing the new Trustee programme we will be developing to support new and existing trustees, including how we can ensure that there is strong recruitment, induction and development programme for all Trustees in Cheshire East.

This session will build upon conversations that have happened through the CVS Trustee and CEO Networks.

Breakout Session 3 – Personal Resilience

Led by Anthony Taylor, an accomplished and regular speaker about mental toughness, stress resilience and mental health.

Anthony runs ThreeFifty9, a mental skills speaking and training consultancy that specialises in equipping people and teams with the mental skills needed to thrive in today’s world. Focusing on developing personal and leadership performance through mental toughness and changing the story around mental health.

Anthony brings the experience of a 20-year career across the private and public sectors both nationally and internationally.

Attendees will be provided with a free copy of Anthony's book 'Mental Toughness Metaphors: Stories to build resilience for parents, coaches, trainers and thinkers'
