Our members' conferences: learn, network and influence

Our members’ conferences are a space for our members to come together, to network, and gain new skills and knowledge to ensure that voluntary and community action has the greatest possible impact in our local area.

Our conferences take place twice a year and have a strong focus on learning and skills development, to ensure our members have what they need to operate in this difficult climate.

We aim to create an inclusive and friendly space for all at our conferences and network meetings, and are committed to equality and diversity. We can provide information in alternative formats on request and we prioritise accessibility when selecting our event venues.
