Description

Social innovation and working together – Networking Charity Conference

'Working together to make YORK better'

Thursday 8th June 2017
9.00am - 3.00pm
De Grey Court, York St John University

A networking conference to bring York independent charities, the voluntary sector and local businesses together to promote synergies and social enterprise; to make a strong unit that ‘work together to make York better’.

Purpose of the conference

  • Lack of engagement between independent charities in York. The conference will highlight the opportunity to promote synergies and explore how we can all work together.

  • Many independent charities encounter the same issues and problems. The conference aims to encourage the transfer of knowledge and opportunity to learn from others’ experience.

  • Businesses do not understand how they can support the third sector and their local communities. The conference will give an opportunity to showcase how they can help and promote the ongoing work of local charities;

  • To raise public awareness of the excellent support available in York.
