What is trust and why do we need it now more than ever? Free event on 28th January

It could be said that never has the word ‘trust’ been spoken more in public discourse than recently. The national emergency of a global pandemic, together with world politics and changes in our climate have meant that ‘trust’ has leapt to the forefront of debate.

But what exactly is it, how do we build and repair it, and what happens if it is weakened or lost?

In partnership with our friends at BRAP, HEAR is hosting an event on

Thursday 28th January at 4.30pm-6pm

via Zoom

to examine, discuss, share and learn about trust, what it is, how it comes about, how it can be damaged or strengthened, and at this time of crisis, why we need it now more than ever, in civil society organisations, in our communities and in society more widely.

HEAR aims, through its funded projects, and in partnership with its members, to provide a wide range of workshops, peer learning and networking and other events of benefit to London voluntary and community organisations, and those with whom they work. HEAR training, workshops and events address many different topics related to equality, human rights, diversity and inclusion.
The Policy and Campaigns project, funded by Trust for London, organises networking events to support organisations with their policy and campaigns work. Our work funded by City Bridge Trust organises a variety of events  and activities to build and strengthen bridges  between different parts of London, across different equality groups and specialisms, and to promote voice and influence. Our NetEquality and Stronger Together projects also hold events, seminars and workshops. In addition HEAR Works with its members and others to put on other events on specific equality or human rights themes.
