“The Common Ground Meetings enable us to meet other people and learn about things to improve our practice.”

About Common Ground Meetings

Common Ground Meetings are an invaluable opportunity for knowledge sharing and a time when befriending staff or committee members can meet others involved in befriending projects locally, discuss and explore topical issues around befriending as well as contribute to good practice in befriending at a national level.

Several times a year, a series of Common Ground Meetings take place in a wide range of locations, where the same core topic is discussed. Meetings are relaxed, friendly, informative, stimulating & challenging discussions that are central to our mission of supporting and connecting our membership to make us a strong, inclusive, dynamic network. 

At the end of each series, Befriending Networks produces comprehensive notes so you can find out what other befriending projects across the country have been talking about! Past topics have included: Social Media, GIRFEC Values & Befriending, and Recruiting Volunteers. 

Cost

Free of charge for members.
£10/individual for non-members.
