Event description
Let’s Talk Event hosted by Advice NI and TASC

About this event

Advice NI and TASC are co-hosting the second in our two-part series of public roundtable events on Thursday 26th May 2022. This event brings together individuals, including from across the public sector and civil society, to highlight existing strategies and plans in development, to protect vulnerable citizens from the impact of Covid-19 and Brexit.

The aim of the workshop is to generate debate and discussion and to produce a policy brief for public distribution that shares learning from the two events and makes recommendations in terms of accessing services and supports. This policy brief will also identify opportunities for on-going cross-border cooperation and knowledge sharing.
