Voluntary Action South West Surrey VASWS Conference 2019

View Calendar
9.04.2019 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM
University of Surrey
Address: University Of Surrey Alexander Fleming Road, GUILDFORD, GU2 7JL

The 2019 conference will explore the difference we make as charities and voluntary sector organisations: Are we being as effective as we can be? Can we do more to demonstrate the impact we make? How can we measure the difference we make and where would Surrey be without us?

To help set the scene and start the day VASWS are very pleased to welcome Helen Stephenson CBE Chief Executive of the Charity Commission as the keynote speaker.

There are a choice of workshops open to delegates designed to follow through on the conference theme.
