Child Poverty Action Group returns for the 3rd year

Next week, we look forward to welcoming back The Child Poverty Action Group who return for their 3rd annual Welfare Rights Conference.

A pinnacle event in their calendar, the day attracts a large number of welfare rights workers, advisors and policy workers from across the country, on topics pertinent to social security and welfare rights.

Through a mixture of talks, question and answer sessions and in-depth workshops, the Conference aims to inform, analyse and spark discussion about pressing welfare rights issues, providing invaluable opportunities for delegates to network and share ideas.

Historically held in London, in 2013 they held their first Northern event to engage a broader audience. With its excellent travel links and central location, Manchester was the natural choice and the UMIC offered the best combination of convenience, service and cost amongst a very competitive field.

Fast forward two years, and the Northern Conference at UMIC is now a firm and favourite fixture, selling out months in advance. Organiser, Sebastian Clark said: ‘Our success has been aided – in no small part – by the excellent service and facilities at UMIC, with truly excellent feedback from all of our delegates. Needless to say, we look forward to returning to the UMIC this September!’
