Over 60 leaders from voluntary organisations across the borough gathered at the Welwyn Hatfield Alliance Conference for a networking event.

This year’s theme ‘Communities Together’ saw attendees discuss ongoing projects and work within the voluntary and community sector, whilst also celebrating the strong partnerships that exist.

The annual event, held at the Focolare Centre in WGC, featured keynote speeches from Welwyn Hatfield Inter Faith Group, Connect Hertfordshire, Welwyn Hatfield Community Voluntary Service, Citizens’ Advice Welwyn Hatfield and Welwyn Hatfield Community Inclusion Partnership.

Councillor Bernard Sarson said: “Collaborative working is key to the success of our borough, and the work of voluntary and charity groups has never been more important or needed.

“The conference is not only about celebrating this work, but also gives us an opportunity to reflect on areas that can be improved on, and how we can all work better together to build resilient, sustainable, supportive communities.”
