#ILoveSmallCharities ‘Big Advice Day’ (W&N.Yorks) – Small Charity Week

Great advice is not always easy to come by when resources are stretched. This can be a particular issue for small charities and not for profit organisations. Big Advice Day 2017 will take place on 20th June, with a national London event (hosted by the FSI – Foundation for Social Improvement) and regional events across the country. At these events small charities can access expert 1:1 advice and workshops on a variety of topics.

Provident Financial and Participate are hosting Big Advice Day (West & North Yorkshire) on Tuesday 20th June as part of Small Charities Week 2017. We invite you to come and join us for an inspiring day of workshops and 1:1 advice with experts from a wide range of organisations that support the Voluntary sector.

You’ll go home with new strategies and techniques to increase revenue, resilience, visibility, team morale and measure your social value. You’ll also have the opportunity to network with other Small Charities & Social Enterprises, share ideas and get information and support from a wide range of organisations at our marketplace stalls.

Full workshop schedule and timetable to be confirmed (we will be sending confirmed attendees a selection e-mail, with the option to book both workshops and 1:1 advice slots on a first come, first served basis).
