In these increasingly difficult post pandemic times, effective management and good governance are central to the success and survival of voluntary groups in West Wales. There is increasing pressure on the individuals who run these organisations to meet their legal responsibilities.
Now more than ever, it is vital that the sector has the skills and knowledge to ensure its resilience. For the fourth year Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS), working in partnership with Carmarthenshire Association of Voluntary Services (CAVS) and Ceredigion Association of Voluntary Organisations (CAVO) has organised the online West Wales Governance Conference, this year taking place during national Small Charities Week from the 19th – 23rd June , with a daily session taking place from 12 -1pm via Zoom.
The lunch time sessions will provide updates on some of the key issues which the Third Sector needs to be aware of and what help is available to them. These sessions include Safeguarding and DBS checks for your organisation; updates from the Charity Commission; the Knowledge Hub & its free resources; Community Interest Companies & Social Enterprise and a regional update on what is happening in the future for the voluntary sector in West Wales
This is a free event to representatives from voluntary and community groups. For full details of all the sessions and to book a place click here.
