Time Out network meeting to be held online on 26th January

It will probably come as little surprise that we have decided to hold our network meeting online, as it feels too risky to bring together a group of people in an inside space at the moment.

However, we do hope that you will join us by Zoom for a shortened meeting on:

Wednesday 26th January, 10:30am-12.00pm

Although we will miss the coffee and cake element of proceedings, it will be fantastic to see you all and to share information about what’s going on for children and young people in our area.

We will aim to keep the meeting concise (as per agenda below) and, depending on how many people come, we aim to finish in the allocated time.We would appreciate if you could complete this form for numbers: https://forms.office.com/r/qBHPhMQVGn 

Apologies if you have already emailed but this form is very short and is the online booking.

The Time Out Team

Join Time Out Calderdale network and take part in our meeting

If you work in any way with children and young adults in Calderdale, you may want to join the Time Out network, an organisation looking after the health and wellbeing of young people in our region.

There are plans for a meeting, inviting all the contacts of the Time Out network network.

The date has provisionally been set as Wednesday 26th January, 10:30-12:30.

Depending on the Covid situation, this meeting may be face-to-face at the Orange Box, or online, or a bit of both. Whichever way it goes, it will be great to come together and talk about what’s happening for young people in Calderdale.

The meeting will focus around Children’s Mental Health Week, which falls the week after and has a theme of Growing Together.

Time Out network meetings are unique, in that they bring together everyone who provides a service or activity for 10-19 year olds, whether that be a theatre, a support service or a local football club. It’s been fantastic to watch connections being made over the years, and unlikely partnerships forming which extend opportunities for young people. Sadly, these meetings have been a casualty of the pandemic and we’re really excited to be welcoming you back.

We also have several new team members, who are looking forward to meeting you all. Please let us know if you will be able to attend, and we’ll send you an agenda and more information nearer the time.

Please visit Time Out Calderdale for contact information.
