Event description
What impact can volunteering have in uncertain times and what challenges and opportunities face the sector as we head into the new decade

About this Event

This year our annual event & AGM will look at key issues impacting the voluntary sector with a particular focus on volunteers and their place in our changing world. We will debate the key questions and issues which can help engage and inspire a new generation of volunteers, look at how volunteers can help tackle some of the challenges we face in society and harness the power of volunteering to make life better for everyone. Hear from experts and guest speakers and most importantly have your say and contribute to the debate.
