RSN will be providing a series of Regional Meetings/Seminars for member local authorities. Firstly, we hope to provide opportunities for all members to attend an event close to home and thus incur less travelling time and costs. We appreciate that not all authorities can make our London meetings. Secondly, to enable some regional rural networking, discussion and debate on issues of great concern to rural areas for example Rural Social Care and Health and Rural Connectivity.
The events will be split into two sessions:
a) A Seminar session with expert speakers on a key rural topic
b) A more round table discussion / meeting where RSN members can come together at a regional level to look at the topic in more detail from both a national and regional focus and share ideas and best practice. This could lead to a future RSN campaign or research activity
There will of course also be an opportunity to discuss current work and campaigns of the RSN.
