Big Event 2011

Voluntary and Community Sector Preparing for the Future

Held on 7th March 2011, Winter Gardens, Eastbourne

The event was attended by over 200 participants and it received a very positive feedback. The event raised awareness of government planned changes and its implications at the local level, in East Sussex. It highlighted localism bill, public spending bill and the NHS. It focused on transition year of 2011/2012 and how VCS can best prepare themselves for being fit for purpose.
It was a huge success and we are planning to organise similar event next year.
The Advice Fair provided hands on support for groups in all aspects of the funding advice, current commissioning opportunities, organisational support and free and low cost services available to voluntary groups.
