Community Networking Breakfasts continue to build partnerships
The popular Community Networking Breakfast programme takes place monthly at ng homes' Saracen House office in Possilpark. The ‘breakfast’ is open to organisations, community groups, entrepreneurs, and others interested in connecting and building partnerships to support community members.
It is a very welcoming event, starting at 10am with the popular ‘Speakers’ Corner’ when organisations can speak about the work they do, who they support, ways they can partner with others to benefit community members and provide information on upcoming events.
There’s also opportunities to share information, upcoming activities and events with others in the room as well as a ‘Marketplace’ where organisations will leave community information.
The event has generated a number of strong new local partnerships, including with ng homes Regeneration team – and the community connections grow with every ‘breakfast’!
At recent community breakfasts, speakers included Amy Mills from Glasgow and Clyde Rape Crisis, Dawn Fyfe from Wise Women, Jess Carley from Gamcare and Rossie Stone from Dekko Comics.
Amy Mills, Access and Development Worker for Glasgow Rape Crisis said, "I found the Community Networking Breakfast so useful and beneficial to our organisation. I feel this occurring once a month will be a great benefit to us for meeting and connecting with local organisations.
"I met so many new organisations and individuals and this gave me an insight on organisations that I didn’t know existed. The Speakers’ Corner was the best part of the Community Breakfast as it was so interesting to find out in-depth information on organisations out there. Thank you for the invite”.
