Improving Families Lives – Engagement Event

We are keen to gain insight and understanding as we move to a new world. We want to know what you, as our stakeholders and partners require from us. Whether this is how we can service the families across Essex whilst maintaining our unique selling point, connecting with people, progressing them to further opportunities and/or tackling social mobility and inclusion. We want your thoughts, ideas, and feedback about how we can help you and the community we all help to support.

Come along to one of our free engagement sessions and help us develop the future of Family Learning at ACL. All sessions will be hosted virtually on Microsoft Teams.
