What makes a good city? Series 3. Wednesday 19th June 12 – 1.30pm
Greg Fell, Director of Public Health Sheffield speaks on ‘Public Health, welfare and crime: getting the balance right.’The respondent will be Erica Dunmow, UTU’s Chair of Trustees.
This talk will look at the major issues in public health facing our city, and the initiative in Glasgow that has addressed knife crime as a public health matter.
In UTU’s library, Lower Ground Floor, Victoria Hall Methodist Church, Sheffield (entrance in Chapel Walk). Bring your own packed lunch. Tea and coffee provided. Free entrance. All welcome.
Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. Jeremiah 29:7
We are continuing looking at the issues where faith and civic or public life overlap.
We started with an exploration of the balance between personal charity and state welfare, continue with this session to look at the interface between welfare and crime and then in our third summer forum, will look at the ethics of poverty and welfare.
As usual our speaker’s theme after their address will be considered by a respondent, followed by open discussion.
People of Christian faith, other faiths or none are all welcome.
