Have you got good ideas about how to provide services to families in need? Citycamp Families is a one day event this Saturday at Hub Westminster, applying barcamp and hackday approaches to public service design.
You might be working with families, part of a local campaigning group, interested in policy research or part of a family with experience of the system. The idea is to gather together a multi-disciplinary group in an informal setting to help find better ways of providing services.
You might have thought of a technological innovation, a social enterprise start-up, a lobbying idea, a research report to commission, or something completely new in service delivery.
The day has been designed by two public servants in their spare time, working with some think-tank colleagues, and others from businesses and not-for-profit organisations. The day is action focussed. It's not all about blue sky ideas but practical solutions. At the end of it all there'll be an agreed to-do list of how to take ideas forward. So get thinking.
