Your opportunity to network, influence and learn

We can achieve much more together than we can in isolation.

Our Network and Learn sessions provide an opportunity for local Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations to meet one another, form partnerships and work with each other to access funding and deliver services.

Future Focus 2022

Future Focus brings together the local VCSE sector to engage in a range of workshops on key topics affecting the sector, share ideas and innovation, be inspired by stories and network with one another.
