Anyone involved in a voluntary or community organisation is welcome to come along to the next Voluntary Sector Forum on Thursday 10th March, which features:

  • Support for farming families– Milly Fyfe from the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI) will give an overview of the welfare services and support the charity offers for farming families experiencing financial difficulties.
  • Just Communities– Liliana Gnoinska will talk about Just Lincolnshire’s project to improve recording and recognition of hate crimes as well as support for victims, for whom the effects can be devastating.
  • Action on Hearing Loss(formerly RNID) – Tamasin Larocque-Fathers will introduce the charity’s services and support for people confronting deafness, hearing loss or tinnitus.
  • Chance for you to share information and promote your organisation’s services, projects and events via the ‘open Forum’ slot and leaflet swap.

Plus there’s a free afternoon workshop between 1pm – 3pm:

Legal structures for community organisations

Not sure of the difference between a CIO and a CIC?  Get an overview of the most common legal structures used by voluntary and community organisations and consider the key features and implications of different structures and statuses such as Charitable Incorporated Organisation, Community Interest Company, registered charity and more.

Both sessions are free to attend but places are limited so booking is essential.

You’re welcome to book for either the morning Forum or the afternoon workshop as separate events, or book both to make a day of it.
