Business as usual
The Olympic and Paralympic Games bring opportunities and challenges to the working practices of the businesses in the Borough from all sectors. This workshop considered how we can plan to mitigate the risk, maximise the opportunities and identify where the activities of the Games outside of the Borough will impact in the service delivery within the Public, Private and Third Sector.
Business as Unusual Rolling Presentation
Faster, Stronger, Higher – Young People’s Aspirations for the Olympics
This workshop provided the opportunity to meet with young people from the Barking and Dagenham Youth Forum Leisure Sub-Group. The session considered what individual Partners can do to support the young people’s vision and what the Partnership should be doing leading up to, during and after the games to improve their opportunities.
The Olympic Legacy and Inward Investment in Barking and Dagenham
There are a number of physical improvements and new facilities that are already being developed around the Borough as part of the Olympic Games. This workshop considered how Partners can contribute to improving the inward investment in the Borough, positively promote the Borough and maximise the opportunities for businesses leading up to, during and after the 2012 Games.
Health Legacy of the 2012 Games
The workshop considered the vision for the health and wellbeing of the Borough in a new light, with some specific focus on the babies due to be born during the 2012 Games. Partners will identify the role of one another whether they directly work with young people or if they have no obvious correlation to them. This will allow Partners to identify their role and contributions to meeting the vision of a strong health legacy as a result from the 2012 Games.
