Dear  colleagues

We have seen unprecedented financial challenges for the voluntary community faith and social enterprise sector over recent years with things not looking any different for the immediate future. Our conference this year is an opportunity to focus on sustainability and resilience to help us deal with the significant challenges the sector faces in not only continuing the amazing services already being delivered but also how do we meet the emerging needs with less resources.

Our conference on Wednesday 5th July, will offer the sector the opportunity to listen to keynote speakers, meet various funders, access workshops along with the opportunity for networking.
