One East Midlands annual event: Inclusion Matters 26/11/18

You are invited to join us for the One East Midlands annual event and AGM taking place on Monday 26th November 2018 from 10.00am to 2.00pm (registration and refreshments at 9.30am, networking lunch at 1.00pm) at The Hope Centre, Southchurch Drive, Clifton NG11 8AR.


The event will begin with the One East Midlands annual general meeting, followed by Board Member Laurie Moran talking about the East Midlands Inclusion Framework, commissioned and published this year by One East Midlands.  We'll also hear about the role the VCSE plays in a 'flourishing' economy, an update on the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (which will replace European funding) and the future of VCSE representatives on Local Economic Partnerships.
