Charity Champions event
Thursday 8 November 2018
The Grosvenor, Chester

A unique event bringing inspiring speakers, knowledgeable third-sector professionals and not-for-profit leaders together to answer some of the burning questions that currently challenge your organisation.

Rachel Clacher is our key note speaker at this inaugural event. Having identified a need, Rachel developed the WeMindTheGap charity to work with disadvantaged young women who were lacking in aspiration and life opportunities. At a time when local authority funding is being cut, WeMindTheGap continues to access support from local authorities. Rachel will tell us how this happened and the challenges she faced along the way.

Please note this event is aimed at senior leaders and trustees or governors of not for profit organisations.

The content of the round table discussions will be at a strategic level and therefore relevant to the people within your organisation that make the strategic decisions
