Our TALKFEST engagement sessions are back week commencing 26 July 2021. This year due to COVID-19 restrictions, our TALKFEST events will take place virtually using Microsoft Teams and we have also set up a freephone telephone number so that anyone who isn’t able to use Microsoft Teams is able to dial in and listen.

We will be holding two events, a morning and an evening session, to enable as many people as possible to join us:

  • Tuesday 27 July 6:00pm
  • Thursday 29 July 10:00am

TALKFEST is a community engagement initiative, and its purpose is to inform local communities about changes and developments to health and social care in St Helens. We also use it as an opportunity to engage with local communities about various topics and listen to views and feedback from those who use our services. The topics at these sessions will cover:

  • COVID-19 update from Public Health
  • Preparing for Autumn and beyond
  • Saving lives during winter
  • Communities update from Halton and St Helens VCA

TALKFEST is our way of engaging with as many different people and communities in St Helens as possible including schools, workplaces, community, partners and third sector and voluntary organisations. Please share this information with your groups so we can ensure as many people as possible can get involved.
