As a seventy-something individual with a vol-org, community development and social enterprise background I'm looking for ways of continuing these interests. Whilst living in a location which, arguably, is failing to development a dialogue around community development theory and practice.

Peter. Yes, I'm still working, as a self-employed consultant in economic development and regeneration, particularly from a community and social economy perspective, and in social auditing. However, over the coming months, I shall be trying to focus on finishing some longstanding research on social enterprise. I'm looking forward to next Friday's event, and hopefully it will be inclusive and participative, as well as offering some radical thinking and opportunities. We'll see! Best wishes, Mike
Hello, Peter. Thanks for your message. Your name does sound familiar, but I think you must be thinking of someone else. I'm 60 and have lived and worked in various different parts of England (including - from 1974 to 1987 - Birmingham, Newcastle Upon Tyne, London, and Workington), but - since 1987 - my home has been in Basildon, Essex, though I also spent most of 2002-6 in Sheffield. I'm planning to be at the NCIA/TUC conference next Friday. Will you be there?
