Attendees Discussing in Groups at Our March Conference 2014


Our members conferences: learn, network and influence

Our members conferences bring together all of our networks on one day. Our networks are a space for members to come together around issues that matter to them. They include our:

  • Small groups network
  • Children and young people network
  • Communities network
  • Commissioning network
  • Volunteer co-ordinators forum

Our members conferences take place three times a year. In the spring, summer and autumn. We aim to create an inclusive and friendly space for all, and are committed to equality and diversity. We can provide information in alternative formats on request and we prioritise accessibility when selecting our event venues.
