People's Powerhouse's mission is to bring people together for meaningful dialogue, sharing and action - be they community groups, young people, practitioners, policy makers, opinion formers, businesses, or MPs.

They believe that by sharing platforms with each other, collaborating in formulating a programme for the day and continuing to work together beyond Sunderland we will better understand the issues that affect us all and find solutions that work for more people.

People's Powerhouse wants to be part of a North that:

  • Is more inclusive, where our diverse voices and strengths are represented
  • Has a good economy that works for more people
  • Genuinely includes local people in local decision making
  • Has a focus on the value of all our places
  • Is an exemplar of collaboration, sharing and learning together

At last year’s convention People's Powerhouse launched the Charter. They believe that these foundations will transform the fortunes of peoples’ lives in the North.

If you would like to celebrate the great things that are already happening in the North and you have ideas about how better lives for all of us in the North can be achieved – come and be part of this years’ big conversation.

This is a great opportunity for you to raise awareness of your work, organisation, campaign or service and genuinely connect, collaborate and create, helping to shape the kind of North we all want to live and work in.

The event is on Tuesday 19th November at Beacon of Light, Stadium Park, Sunderland SR5 1SN from 9:30am until 4:30pm
