Road to Growth Events

Charity Bank is inviting trustees, directors, CEOs and managers of charities, social enterprises and community organisations to attend a series of free regional events in September and October.

The Road to Growth events will last half a day and include a series of panel discussions with leading social sector experts.

NCVO will present an update on the state of the sector and then sector specialists will engage with the audience in unpicking some of the challenges and opportunities that exist.


The issues that matter

Panelists will share research and insights on the state of the sector, how political and Brexit uncertainty are impacting the sector, examples of how charities and social enterprises are responding, as well as the latest on funding, regulation, technology and governance.

Access and the National Lottery Community Fund will give an overview of the funding environment and details on some of the latest funding and grants available to help social sector organisations grow, improve their sustainability and make a bigger difference.

Attendees will gain practical insight and guidance to help their organisations survive and thrive in a changing world.
