Welcome to Future Focus 2020

Booking for Future Focus 2020 has now closed – to book onto Day 3, email reshma.g@valonline.org.uk

Future Focus is VAL’s annual conference for the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in Leicester and Leicestershire.

The theme for this year’s Future Focus is resilience and recovery. We know that our sector has been hit hard by the pandemic, even though a huge number of charities and individuals have been absolute heroes in giving their time and resources to help local communities. Now is the time to focus on how we can get the sector back on its feet and future-proof VCSE organisations as much as possible whilst we still face an uncertain future.

When and where

This year’s Future Focus will take place over three days – October 13 to 15.

With restrictions from the COVID lockdown still in place for people in Leicester and considering the safety of our attendees, we have decided that this year’s conference will be fully virtual, with all sessions and talks being delivered through Zoom. Workshops can be booked via Eventbrite using the links below.

Day 1: Funding - Tuesday 13 October

Come and talk to us about funding and how it has changed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Hear from like-minded people and problems they’ve had securing funding as well as hearing from experts in this field.
