Our Model

We’re currently running two rolling events from which you can learn about our model and history:

  • Essentials Tour – this covers our history, context and current services, and is delivered by Dan Hopewell, our Director of Knowledge & Innovation. Dan’s been at BBBC for 18 years, previously with roles in service delivery, Director of Services and Director of Strategy, so is able to talk to lots of different areas of enquiry. We give a presentation followed by a guided walk around the site, and have a dedicated time for further Q&A / discussion at the end. The tour is open to anyone, so we always receive a mix of people attending and cover a range of points accordingly. Find tickets here.
  • Insights Seminar – this day-long seminar will bring together our research and practitioner knowledge to set out the key components of our model that can support change for individuals, our community and the systems to support them. This will be led by senior and front line staff who have an in-depth understanding of how our model works strategically and on a day to day level. Most importantly the day will support attendees to think through what the next steps are for you to translate this in their communities. Find out more here.
