A group of people sat around a table listening to the man in the middle speak. In the background there is another group discussion at a different table.

Newcastle Building Society is working with the Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland and organisations across the region to ‘Connect, Collaborate and Make a Difference’ and help create positive change for our communities.

We invited the region’s business leaders and decision makers to our Cobalt HQ on Thursday 21st March to find out more about Vital Signs 2024 and how we can all work together to address key issues facing communities in the North East.

Vital Signs is a guide to the issues affecting the health and prosperity of our region and highlights where we can best focus our efforts to boost social mobility.

Speakers at the event:
