CEN holds events which bring community groups together to learn from each other, share information and influence decision-makers. The events are dynamic and interactive.
We also advertise events held by community groups, or meetings and training open to the community. Click here to view the calendar. To advertise your event, please contact us.

Places are restricted to CEN members. Registration is free and refreshments provided.
CEN Information Fairs
Often working in partnership with other organisations, CEN organises Information Fairs to provide presentations, demonstrations and opportunities to get involved in local, regional and national events. These events are open to CEN members and guests. Registration is free and refreshments provided.
Single Issue Workshops
From time to time we hold workshops which focus on one issue in particular. These bring key decision-makers together with members of the network interested in this issue.
CEN also organises training events which have included community representation, workshop facilitation, charity trustee/director and community writers courses, environmental and intergenerational workshops.
