Are you the leader of a Tameside faith organisation? Do you run a community activity at your local faith building in Tameside? Are you a professional working in Tameside who wants to find out more about how Tameside’s faith organisations are alleviating loneliness?

Join us to celebrate the work that Tameside faith groups provide to alleviate social isolation across the Borough. This is your opportunity to meet other faith organisations to share what we do, and to learn from each other. There will be practical workshops, inspiring speakers and networking opportunities. Registration with tea/coffee is at 9:30.
