Training and Events
Thanks to funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, we are running a series of free training courses for York’s voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector, alongside our regular voluntary sector forums.
Voluntary Sector Forums
Our voluntary sector forums are open events that focus on discussing topic-specific issues that impact people living in York. We bring the sector together to work in partnership to share best practice and sector developments, tackle inequalities, and to positively influence strategic decision making.
