The aim is to bring local community organisations and businesses together to provide mutual support and exchange expertise. As well as regular networking events, a Facebook Group has been created, where organisations can request and/or offer help to each other.
The Forum is a partnership initiative between CVSU, Volunteer Uttlesford and Uttlesford District Council. The launch event was held in the District Council Offices in December 2016 and the first #UbexForum Network Event was hosted by Stansted Airport at their Aerozone in July 2017.
At the July event, a number of local businesses and voluntary and community groups attended to network and listen to presentations from The HR Specialists, and Mind in West Essex, who provided more information about working based mental health training and other bespoke services they can provide.
