Tomorrows London: A Space to Think Event

Tomorrows London
A Space to Think Event

20th January 2016 9:30 – 4:00

LVSC and London for All are holding a day long conference to kick start the New Year.

We’ve seen the comprehensive spending review, while 2016 brings the London mayoral elections and further progression of the devolution programme. The conference will provide the VCSE sector with a space to think about what these and other challenges mean for their organisations and the people they work with. Exploring the political, economic, social and technological challenges and opportunities facing our sector, we will explore strategies to not just survive but thrive, to ensure the best outcomes for Londoners.

During the highly interactive day participants will have an opportunity to think about how the national and London picture will impact on their work, cohort and organisation and in the afternoon open space sessions we will explore how organisations can thrive rather than just survive.

We will hear from a range of speakers including Nick Davies (Public Services Manager, NCVO), Ben Rogers (Director,Centre for London), Tim Wilson (Principal Grants and Social Investment Officer, City Bridge Trust), Vivienne Hayes MBE (CEO,Women’s Resource Centre), Cllr Farah Hussain (LB Redbridge), Ross Diamond (Chief Officer, Redbridge CVS), Dominic Pinkney (Works 4U) and a representative from Clean Break.

Our breakout sessions will focus on:

1) Continuing to meet the need: working with Local Authorities following the CSR.

2) Devolution and a changing London: what does it mean for the VCSE?

3) Wooing and working with the private sector: strategies and insider information
