Diversity and inclusion
We encourage attendance from members from ethnic minority communities as these groups are underrepresented in our sector and we are working to include their viewpoints in all our events.
We welcome all voices, whether spoken, issued prior to meetings, or during meetings electronically.

Special interest group dates
All interest groups are free to attend for both our charity and corporate members. Charity members can access meeting reports from past interest group meetings by logging in here.
Face to face meetings are back
You will notice some of the events below have a physical location. Places are currently limited to 20 for physical meetings to ensure we meet social distancing requirements. When restrictions relax further we hope to extend this cap on numbers. However, given the current restrictions we are asking members to only book one person per charity to ensure as many charity members as possible can attend.
