THCVS Health and Wellbeing networking events are designed to make new connections in Tower Hamlets and enable us to showcase some of the most innovative Voluntary sector projects that are having a positive impact. Whether you’re looking to find out more about the THCVS, get involved with an exciting project, or to network with like-minded people, The networking event offers something for everyone.
What’s the format?
The event is a mix of three-minute project pitches and facilitated networking. Each pitch will finish with a call to action, asking the audience to share their skills and experience to help further their project. Between project pitches, there are short bursts of networking where you’ll be able to spark new connections and talk to the project pitchers about how you can support their work. The networking event is an interactive, standing event, though limited seating may be available. Find out about our first Networking Event in March here - with slides from commissioners and pitches from a number of groups.
Who can attend?
Our networking events are free to attend, but due to their popularity, we ask that you please register in advance by following the ‘Register here ’ link at the top of the event page.

Building partnerships and consortiums can take time, and the hardest part is thinking about and telling others exactly what it is you are good at and why people should partner with you. Our networking events provide this opportunity for you to start thinking through this process, and find the right partners for you and your organisation.
We look forward to working with you at the networking event.
