Children and the Annual General Meeting

Getting to events at the Social Science Centre can be challenging if you’ve got to juggle this with looking after children or helping them with their own activities. Taking part in events can also be tricky if you are being pulled between playing and participating all the time, or if there are no spaces for children’s voices, energies and contributions. The SSC childcare working group is looking for ways to make learning and self-organising easier and more fun for everyone.

This month, we would like to offer support with childcare during the upcoming Annual General Meeting (May 16th, 11am-4pm at Croft Street Community Centre), and to have activities for older children who might be attending.

If you are planning to come with children or would like to talk to us about ways of organising childcare during the meeting, please contact sarah@socialsciencecentre.org.uk.

 

4th Annual General Meeting – May 16th, 11-4pm

The Social Science Centre will hold its 4th AGM on May 16th 2015 at Croft Street Community Centre. This is a public event and all are welcome. An agenda will follow soon but the day is likely to begin with the formal business of our co-operative, followed by lunch (bring and share) and then a series of talks and discussions, including guest speakers, Tony Jeffs, Bob Cannell, and Andrew Jackson. Join us to celebrate four years of free, co-operative higher education!
