99 people from all over the UK registered for the Befriending Facilitated Conversation on 24th Nov.
Feedback was positive with many sharing their appreciation of the presentation from our 4 speakers. This is what Becca Hopkins from Refugee Roots had to say:
‘ I really enjoyed attending the City of Sanctuary conversation around Befriending. It was a great reminder that there are so many other organisations and individuals working towards the same thing and that we’re not alone in our ventures. I enjoyed hearing from the three guest speakers who all had something different to bring and I had lots to take away to help improve our befriending work at Refugee Roots. The event was well managed and stuck to the time schedule, which I really appreciated as it was in the middle of a very busy work day. COS are doing great work across the UK and I really enjoyed being able to learn and get a much better picture of this. Thanks!’
