East Midlands Housing and Employment Network launching

Members based and operating in the East Midlands are invited to get involved with the newly launched Midlands Housing and Employment Network (EMHEN). The first meeting will be chaired by Communities that Work, hosted at Nottingham City Homes and delivered in partnership with Futures Housing Group.

The new network is being set up to help connect local partners and providers in the East Midlands, and to ensure that partnerships are in place when local or national opportunities arise to deliver employment support to our tenants, residents, and communities.

The meeting takes place on Monday 15 May 11am-1pm at Nottingham City Homes offices, Loxley House, Station Street, Nottingham, NG2 3NJ.

If you’re an East Midlands based member, and want to get involved, RSVP by email to Lynsey@communitiesthatwork.co.uk by Friday 5 May.
