We are delighted to announce a new partnership with Charity Bank – an ethical bank that uses its savers’ money to lend to charities and social enterprises – to deliver Road to Growth, a regional series of free half day seminars.
These events will provide the latest insight on the state of the social sector at a time of change and challenge. 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 Road to Growth events will run from 9am to 12pm (venues below) and are being delivered in partnership with a wide range of national and local social sector partners. Other national partners include: The National Lottery Community Fund, NCVO, NAVCA and Access – The Foundation for Social Investment.
