Clarity and complexity: the reality of systems change

National Multiple Disadvantage Summit 2024

Systems change has become a catch-all term signifying big dreams and best intentions. But what does it really mean in practice? And why is it so integral to multiple disadvantage work?

Local partnerships across the country know that this work is complex and that there are no easy answers. They are working every day to create clarity on the perspectives, approaches and actions that will really make a difference to people experiencing multiple disadvantage.

Join us at the National Multiple Disadvantage Summit 2024 for a frank exploration of what it takes to truly transform services and systems for people facing multiple disadvantage.

At this broad, multidisciplinary gathering of like-minded practitioners, policymakers, commissioners and people with lived experience from across the country, you’ll be able to:

  • Break down silos: Bridging the gap between sectors, disciplines, and experiences to build shared understanding.
  • Empower yourself as an agent of change: Engage in workshops, discussions and brainstorming sessions, and share your knowledge and experience as an active participant.
  • Build your network: Connect, share, and learn from diverse voices, fostering a network for support and collaboration.
  • Recharge and inspire: Drawing strength for your work from others doing the same.

Join us at Church House Conference Centre, Westminster on 22 May 2024.

Full conference programme and speakers coming soon.
