Highlights included:

A presentation from our CEO, Jess Sumner, our Chair, Ian Bretman, and our Treasurer, Geoff Shanks, on Community Works’ finances and service delivery in 2022/23.

In particular, Jess shared our organisational journey towards Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, including our approach to changing the organisational culture and running inclusive events.

We looked at some key moments since 2013:

  • 15,000 people found a volunteering role through our Volunteer Centre
  • 2600 organisations had bespoke one-to-one advice from our Sector Support team
  • £16 million was raised for the local VCSE with our support
  • 2,450 organisations came to our events, networks and training

    Some of the resources from the conference are listed below, but get in touch with us at info@communityworks.org.uk if you want something specific from the event.
