Voluntary Sector North West is pleased to announce a new partnership with NCVO’s Third Sector Foresight Team. We will be working together over the next few months to understand how the world is changing and how organisations in our region can use this knowledge to make better strategic decisions.
The partnership will provide:
• New insights about the trends and forces impacting on organisations in our region
• Training workshops for infrastructure organisations
• Free copies of pocket guides exploring changing funding, volunteering, population changes and other crucial topics
