Voluntary Sector CPD Conference

Voluntary Sector CPD Conference - March 24 2023

At MK Community Foundation, we recognise that the turbulence of the past two years have had serious implications for the Voluntary, Community and Cultural Sectors of Milton Keynes.


Last year, we sent out a survey to identify which training needs were of most the highest priority.


As the Cost-of-Living-Crisis continues to squeeze the services of so many charities and community groups across Milton Keynes - we know that support is needed now more than ever.


We're excited to be holding our first in-person Voluntary Sector Conference this spring.


Date: Friday, 24 March

Time: 10am - 5pm 

Location: FairspaceMK

Who should attend?

The conference is for anyone from the Voluntary, Community and Cultural Sectors to learn from industry experts and network with peers.

It will be jam-packed with CPD accredited workshops and will provide you with the opportunity to learn about the latest trends, best practices and gain valuable insights from experts in your fields.

Event highlights:

  • LinkedIn marketing
  • Creating partnerships
  • Panel discussion - volunteering training
  • Keynote - The role of leadership
  • Meet the funders
  • Staff and volunteer wellbeing
  • Inclusive governance
  • Making the 'ask'

The conference will feature panel discussions, a keynote speech and interactive workshops on a variety of topics.
