Celebration Seminar to mark campaign achievements
The event will take place in Hereford and will be hosted by author and controversial commentator on rural affairs, Mavis Cheek. Mavis has previously stated: “Life in the country is tough, a little bit dangerous and not for wimps!”.
Mavis will be introducing three keynote speakers to the invited audience. Ian Copeman, Director of the Housing Support Partnership and author of the recent Joseph Rowntree Foundation report: ‘Affordability, Choices and Quality of Life in Housing with Care’, will speak on ‘Rural housing and older people: options, issues and affordability’. He will be followed by Sylvia Brown, Chief Executive at ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) whose subject will be ‘Localism: empowering the people’, and Nick Le Mesurier, independent researcher, who will be presenting a thought-provoking speech entitled: ‘Not quite Rose Cottage: some myths about rural retirement’.
The seminar will be relevant to professionals who have an interest in rural older people’s affairs, particularly with regard to their housing and financial inclusion. In order to ensure a high level of interaction and debate, the audience will be limited to a maximum of 50.
