From: Warner Michael DWP HORFIELD [mailto:MICHAEL.WARNER@DWP.GSI.GOV.UK]
Further to my email, copied below, dated 4th April, I regret to advise that thus far only nine partners have replied & confirmed.
Sovereign housing, WRAMAS, Ashley Community Housing, Nelson Trust, Perennial, W2W, Shelter, CHAS & Aashyana Advice.
This is clearly not enough to justify the investment of time of over 50 work coaches and 7 managers!
Please reply asap to confirm or decline attendance. Need a reply by 1st May, I will update everyone on 2nd May as to if the event is going ahead.
I sincerely hope to are able to attend, I know our Work Coaches are eager to meet you.
Firstly many thanks for your overwhelming support; wasn’t too sure about how you would feel about this with such an early start but your 100% on board J
To confirm the DWP Advice Agencies Forum meeting dated 3rd May is hereby cancelled, and replaced with the following Universal Credit Assurance Meeting and Partnership Fair on WEDNESDAY 9th MAY at Bristol Temple Street Job Centre.
· 8:00-9:00 – Assurance Meeting.
An opportunity to receive the latest update from the site management team and key officers from Temple Street Job Centre (20 mins), followed by 40 mins Q&A where you can seek assurance that we are ready for UC rollout.
· 9:00-10:00 – Partnership Fair for Work Coach’s
An opportunity to set up a wall paper display stand to meet & greet Work Coaches and provide a brief overview of your services. Please keep materials/stands etc to a bare minimum (if at all J ) as you will want very quick set up and very quick fold down.
Again, we respect that this is an early start, however with the numbers of partners involved we will need to do this out of operational working hours.
· Tea & coffee will be provided;
· Access – The public access front doors will be locked. You will need to use the staff entrance, map attached;
· Please confirm your attendance such that we have an indication of numbers.
· I will also invite some additional key partners to this event.
