Resourcing the Sector

September 24, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

A free event for all voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations and stakeholders in Hull.

Hull’s Voice and Influence Partnership is made up of leaders and representatives from the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector (VCSE). The VIP group meets regularly to look at the role of the sector and to ensure it can influence the city’s plans, priorities and strategies.

To connect with the sector, we have held a number of events to gather and share information.

The third of these events, with the theme of ‘Resourcing the Sector’, will be held on September 24th and will include:

  • Making Community Fundraising work for you  – Claire Thomas, HEY Mind

Open discussions:

  • Sharing resources, skills and strengths in your community
  • A centralised approach to funding your work
  • Raising the profile of the sector and local giving
