The People Helping People Event is held over two days on the 10th and 11th September at the Huddersfield Innovation Centre and will look at the landscape and tools we have to build and support a ‘people helping people’ culture and is being organised by TSL Kirklees and Kirklees Council with other partners including Volunteering Kirklees.

The first day will focus on the role of and potential for volunteering in delivering social impact. The second day will focus on social value and how to apply it.

A range of national, regional and local speakers have been invited, to address, provoke and challenge and want to create a vibrant environment for learning, networking, sharing and innovation. The event is based in Kirklees but we will welcomes delegates from across the North of England, and beyond; delegates are strongly encouraged from across the public, private and third sectors and delegates are welcome to attend either or both days of the conference.

DAY 1: Volunteering will include international best practice in volunteer inclusion and development, practical strategies for recruiting and communicating with volunteers; measuring the impact of volunteers – and translating that into social and economic values.

DAY 2: Social Value will include the landscape on social value and its application three years on from the Act; technical areas around social value, reporting and measurement and how public and private sector use social value in people procurement.
