Islington Voluntary Sector Conference 2018


The Power of People, Partnerships and Participation

Your 2018 Conference will cover:

·       The bigger picture: funders and “place based social action”
·       The power of many: The importance of partnership now
·       Local knowledge: close working with local people to deliver what they need

Austerity and poverty continue to increase, but resources to address local issues will reduce or stay unchanged. To address the disadvantages local people face, working with other organisations – across sectors –will become absolutely vital.

In addition there is growing expectation that local people are not simply recipients of services – but also shapers of these services and indeed drivers of the future vision for their localities.

Through our keynote presentations and interactive workshops we will bring you fresh ways of thinking and doing to achieve these goals.

It will also be a wonderful opportunity to see London Metropolitan University’s new state-of-the-art social learning hub, specifically designed for collaborative learning – a fitting venue for an event focussed on ways of working together.

You can see what happened last year in our report on Is Civil Society sleepwalking into obscurity?, Islington Voluntary Sector Conference 2017.

We are again grateful to London Metropolitan University for generously hosting the event.
