Events and opportunities

⭐️ SAVE THE DATE 18th January 2024 - Agbero 2100 Launch event in Manchester

Join us for the launch of AGBERO 2100 :

Taking place in Manchester.

Agbero 2100 aims to provide strategic and tailored support for at least three years, moving away from short-term projects and programs in order to achieve sustainable results. 

The intervention is a collaborative effort that involves strategic partnerships with organisations like the Good Ancestor Movement (GAM), and others. These collaborations will support Ubele in becoming a more sustainable organisation in the initial phase of the strategy. 

 We will provide initial support to up to 50 Black and racially minoritised community-based and anchor organisations through online and in-person workshops, peer networking, and one-on-one support. 30 of these organisations will be selected for further bespoke support. 20 organisations will also receive support for health and well-being.  

In London, the initiative will be scaled up over three years with funding from Propel, supporting 10 organisations to redevelop their sites, offering learning programs to over 600 leaders, and providing community outreach and engagement support across three London boroughs. 

Ubele aims to document and evaluate the learning that emerges from Agbero 2100, with the goal of producing new ideas and ultimately creating a tested model that can be shared nationally to inform wider practices and systemic change. The program will introduce participants to various approaches, including systems thinking, scenario planning, new economic systems, financial performance, and more, with the intention of achieving more equitable outcomes for Black and racially minoritised communities. 

Agbero 2100 is jointly funded by Propel, City Bridge Foundation and Joseph Rountree Foundation. 

The Ubele Initiative receives core funding from The Oak Foundation and The National Lottery Community Fund

⭐️ Haringey 2035 Summit

Haringey 2035 Summit on 13 December 2023 from 2 - 4.30pm at Alexandra House, 10 Station Rd, Wood Green, N22 7TR. It will be independently facilitated and will involve a wide cross-section of public, private and voluntary sector organisations.  

A year ago they launched the Haringey Deal which set out how the Council want to work to really change their relationship with their residents and partner organisations in Haringey. Since then, they have worked hard on getting to know their communities and finding new ways of listening to their perspectives through initiatives like Wood Green Voices, SEND parents and carers forums, and our networks of Friends Of parks and library groups.

They now want to look further ahead at what kind of borough we all want Haringey to be in ten years’ time. You are invited to get involved in developing this vision, contributing your views and ultimately helping make it a reality.

The council want to kick off the development of the vision with an open conversation with a wide group of stakeholders and partners about what is most important to you, your priorities for Haringey over the next ten years and how we can work together as individuals and organisations in the borough to make it happen.

Please confirm your attendance by replying to Dipto Basu
