Suffolk Volunteering Conference 2018 (170518)

 Registration is closed for this event
This year the Suffolk Volunteering Conference will focus on "employer supported volunteering", to develop relationships between Suffolk’s voluntary and business sectors.

“Employer supported volunteering” is when employees are given time off to pursue volunteering opportunities during work time.

This practice allows businesses to invest in communities and social responsibility, whilst developing staff skills and experience.

As a business, you will learn how to enable and inspire your staff to volunteer. As a voluntary organisation, you will learn how to engage with local businesses.

We will have influential speakers, interactive workshops and plenty of opportunity to meet each other in order to grow volunteering in Suffolk.

The Suffolk Volunteering Conference is being supported by BT and will be held at Adastral Park on Thursday 17 May 2018.

Payment to be made at time of booking.
