Voluntary Action South West Surrey Conference 2023 – Tuesday April 4th, 9.45am for a 10am start – 3.30pm (exact finish time still to be confirmed) at The University of Surrey

Our 2023 Annual Conference, themed ‘Recovery’ will be a day full of interesting discussion and debate, with a line-up of expert speakers and workshop presenters.

The event will give everyone the chance to explore the impact that the pandemic has had on the charity and voluntary sector and how we have had to adapt our working practices to reflect the change in society.

There will be lots of different workshops for delegates to take part in, both in the morning and afternoon,plus an opportunity to visit our marketplace – a space where delegates will have a chance to meet an array of businesses whose services support the voluntary sector.

Some of the workshops we have confirmed so far include:

  • Supported Volunteering
  • Social Prescribing
  • SCAMS
  • Care Awareness– Action for Carers
Our Keynote speaker for the day will be Dr Priya Singh. Dr Singh is the current Chair of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations and also serves as Deputy Chair of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, as well as being the Chair of Frimley Integrated Care System. She has a background in general practice, specialising in medical law, ethics and patient safety.

Networking opportunities will play an integral part in the event, giving everyone the opportunity to come together after the pandemic and share their experiences of the last couple of years.

After the welcome and opening address, the day will kick off with our speakers, followed by an opportunity to attend a workshop. This will be followed by lunch and further workshops and networking opportunities.

Our fully accessible venue at The University of Surrey offers great transport links, free parking, plus excellent conference facilities.

In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries or want to make any suggestions for the day. Tickets will be on sale from Early February.
