Three days left to book for the Stronger Together Conference on the 7th July and there is still time to book your place. Here are a few highlights from our programme of workshops and remember the event is free to Community Action Norfolk members and members of the Voluntary Sector Forum.


Always a popular theme for voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations. Our Funding with Ambition session will look at practical considerations as well as strategic approaches to identifying and securing funding from different sources. Our fundraising panel session will allow you to quiz Martin Green from Break the organisation behind Go Go Dragons, Daniel Williams from Big C and Sophie Berry from Nelson’s Journey among others to help you understand what makes their fundraising campaigns work. The tools and tips session will let you explore funding issues from gift aid to community shares and crowd funding. 


Many organisations say they have a challenge promoting themselves. Our panel of experts including Tim Williams, managing editor at Archant will help you get your marketing and media relations right. The social media surgery will guide you through your Facebook and Twitter questions. There are also sessions on involving young people and volunteers so you can engage the people you need to make your organisation thrive.

Strategy and Policy

It is a challenging time for the sector but one that comes with a range of opportunities. Regardless of the size or type of organisation you are, these session will help you understand the road ahead and decide the direction you want to go. As well as hearing from our keynote speaker Wendy Thomson about Norfolk County Council’s future strategy, there will be the results and action from the sector led plan and a chance to discuss how you want to engage in the re-imagining of services in Norfolk. Our ask the commissioner session will give you a chance to quiz commissioners and VCSE organisations about their experiences, how to get the best out of a commissioning relationship as well as decide if commissioning is for you.

Alongside the formal sessions our market place will let you chat to funders and our development officer surgery can provide one to one support. Of course there will be a range of opportunities to network with colleagues and build new relationships over lunch, coffee and drinks at the end of the day.
