Sorry this event has already taken place - please see our forthcoming events list

This will be a round table event where private and third sector organisations can come together to discuss ways in which they could collaborate more / better.


Hear a panel of both private and VCSE sector organisations outline their experiences of collaboration, good and bad. Hear what has worked for them and their thoughts on how to enable the two sectors to work even more closely together, for the benefit of both. The event will be chaired by Matt Richardson, manager of the Social Value Team at the Business Growth Hub.

This will be followed by a Q&A session where attendees will have an opportunity to put questions to the Panel.

Following the roundtable, proposals and mechanisms will be put together to create protocols for better joint working.
