Saturday 11th June 10.30am - 4pm
This is for small community groups to come together, share their experience and expertise, identify what’s needed in the city for them to develop and plan steps needed for that to happen.

10.45 - Overview/Introduction
The morning session will be for groups to meet each other, swap details and experience.
We’ll then identify the kinds of issues we all face in doing our volunteering/work. This will come from the participants, but may well include funding & finance, using social media, recruiting and sustaining volunteers.
1pm Lunch will be provided.
