Get informed in #UKCharityWeek – let’s celebrate our trustees and put new finance at their fingertips!

 

To celebrate #UKCharityWeek and the amazing work charity trustees do all year round, Community Action Suffolk are excited to host GET INFORMED – Social Investment for Boards at The Quay, Ipswich on Friday 7th December 11-2 for a networking lunch.

 

We are pleased to be able to offer this as a FREE EVENT, with lunch included. 

 

GET INFORMED is a joint initiative led by Big Society Capital, which provides free practical support and guidance including mentoring for charity trustees to better understand the opportunities and risks of social investment.

 

This event is the perfect opportunity for trustees and CEOs to:

  • Get your organisation into the national conversation about social impact and #makingadifference.
  • Get informed about social investment options from other trustees who’ve already been supported to improve their future sustainability.
  • Get a mentor to help your board and management team explore the potential for your charity to secure social finance.
  • Get lunch and meet other local groups you could learn from and work with.

 

We really want to use the event to highlight the valuable work that charities do. As part of this, we’ll be asking each organisation to write on our #UKCharityWeek board how their charity is making a difference. We’ll also be asking trustees to share why they’re a trustee. We’ll be taking photos of these (with permission) and plan to share these on ours and Big Society Capital’s social media channels.

 

Partners of GET INFORMED include: Reach Volunteering, CASS Business School, Trustees Unlimited, Association of Chairs, the Honorary Treasurers Forum and the Charity Commission. For more information, visit: www.bigsocietycapital.com/get-informed.
