Forth Valley Third Sector Conference (Rescheduled)
Alongside Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise (SVE) and Clackmannanshire TSI (CTSI), we are delighted to announce a new date for the Forth Valley Third Sector Conference, which was postponed earlier this year due to COVID-19.
We will now be hosting an entirely digital event on Tuesday 9th February 2021.
Continuing with our planned theme of “People, Place, and Participation”, our schedule features guest speakers, networking opportunities, and several workshops covering digital, partnership working, volunteering, and governance.
The work of local charities, community and volunteer groups, social enterprises, and hundreds of volunteers, has been an extraordinary feature across the Forth Valley in 2020 – especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The conference will take place entirely online, via Zoom, 9:15am – 3pm, with optional networking sessions till 4pm. Places are £10 each.
As a mark of the contribution been made by the third sector, our keynote speaker will be Aileen Campbell, MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Local Government and Communities, who will be focusing on our theme, “People, Place and Participation”.

The conference will also feature a plenary by Jim McCormick, the new Chief Executive of the Robertson Trust, and include a packed day of workshops for local third sector staff, volunteers and trustees.
We hope that this stimulating programme will also lead to new partnerships and networking of the sector as we work towards a fairer future for Scotland with a thriving, valued third sector at its heart.
