South and Vale Voluntary Sector Forum
Wednesday 13 March @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pmFree
This free annual event is an opportunity for people from local community groups and voluntary organisations to meet, discuss ideas and share advice in a relaxed setting. Annette Ahern from OCF’s grants team will have a stand at this event where you can find out how to apply for funding from one of our grants programmes.
This year the theme of ‘looking beyond the obvious… volunteers, funding, working together…’ will be discussed and debated throughout the day and you can learn top tips for what your organisation can do to identify different ways to approach the same old questions. Information on funding and other sector resources will be available at the lunchtime networking fair, and during the day you are invited to attend two training sessions and will be led through a facilitated networking session to get to know and learn from others in the voluntary sector.
Speakers include the senior policy and performance manager from the county council, the joint chief executive of one of county’s leading community support organisations, and the manager of a group supporting young people who were winners of OCVA’s best group award.
