Welcome to Future Focus 2021

The theme for this year’s Future Focus is ‘Reconnecting for a Sustainable Future’. The last year has been difficult for us all and even though a huge number of charities and individuals have given their time and resources to help local communities, it is time for us to rethink, plan and evaluate. Join us to reconnect VCSE organisations across Leicester and Leicestershire for a better future.

When and where

This year’s Future Focus will take place over two days – Tuesday 21 & Wednesday 22 September 2021.

This year’s conference will be of a hybrid style.
Day One will be virtual, with all sessions and talks being delivered through Zoom. Workshops can be booked via Eventbrite using the links below.

Day Two will be a face to face panel session along with a chance to network and collaborate with people from the sector. The event will be held at: Whatton House and Gardens, Loughborough, Leicester, LE12 5BG.

The conference opens at 09.30am – 09.45am with a brief opening from our CEO, Kevan Liles followed by our first keynote speaker.

Delegates will then have the choice of attending one of three workshops followed by a comfort break followed by the next set of three workshops. There are limited spaces available for the workshops so please book promptly.

This year we have put together speakers and workshops to focus on how we as a sector can reconnect with each other, sharing ideas to help organisations become more sustainable for the long term. You will hear directly from a great selection of guest speakers who will host different workshops, each with a different focus.
