The annual event is always well supported by delegates from the voluntary and community sectors; however, statutory partners are encouraged to attend, and this year’s event promises to be particularly interesting. The VCSA Board will be taking a look back, reviewing work done over the last year, and also engaging with the wider VCSA membership to discuss plans for the future.
Emma Stone, Director of Design and Research at Good Things Foundation will be discussing the bigger picture about digital inclusion and why this matters more than ever for the community and voluntary sector, with specific focus on rural issues including drawing on experience of rural members in the network. She will explain more about the work of the foundation and encourage delegates to reflect on what they’re already doing, and what more they could do, on digital inclusion as part of their mission.
Peter Cunnison, Grant Manager from Lloyds Bank Foundation for England & Wales will talk about the support and funding that can be applied for via the foundation (an independent charitable trust funded by Lloyds Banking Group).
Prof Mark Barrow, Shropshire Council’s Director of Place, along with other public sector partners, will talk about current developments in their organisations.
