ThriveWorking together in Trafford

Trafford Faith Networking Event – Monday 15th September 2014

Trafford Strong Communities Partnership hosted the Trafford Faith Networking Event on Monday 15th September 2014 at Trafford Town Hall, with over 60 faith based people and groups attending the event.

Trafford Partnership recognises the inspiring and essential role faith organisations play in Trafford communities. They hosted this event to share their support for the Trafford community and listen to how they can better connect with faith based groups.

During the event Rev. Roger Sutton highlighted the key findings from the recent Faith Survey, along with a talk from Sarah at Thrive Trafford about how best to support voluntary, community and faith organisations across Trafford in the future, and discuss how public, private and faith organisations can work better collaboratively.
