East Sussex Community Voice

VCSE Alliance Annual Event 2022

 'Maps and Dreams'
East Sussex VCSE Alliance:
Conference 2022


A conference to look at how we can build a more resilient voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in East Sussex. 

Bring your dreams to Uckfield Civic Centre on 20th April - your ideas for building a stronger and more resilient voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in East Sussex. Together we will sketch out the map of how to achieve them by focusing on three themes: improving mental health and well-being; tackling equality, diversity and inclusion; combatting social isolation and loneliness. 

It will be an opportunity to listen, discuss and plan, informed by the thoughts and everyday experiences of those involved as professionals, volunteers, users of services and leaders from the statutory sector. For authentic contribution, we need organisations and groups of all sizes and shapes to join us so that the conversations really reflect the broad experience we have in the region.

Event Programme

The event will take place in two parts:
The afternoon event will open with the marketplace at 1.00pm, where you can get support and advice from local organisations. From 2.00pm local keynote speakers will talk on our themes for the day to set the context. Workshops will follow ensuring that everyone can contribute their views and ideas. There will also be opportunities to forge links with other organisations during the afternoon. This session will end at 5.15pm.
The evening event, from 5.45pm to 7.45pm, is aimed at the youth sector and is open to young people as well as professionals working across the sector. In a similar format, there will be a marketplace, keynote speakers plus some short films to set the context. Our workshop will take the shape of an open space forum to tackle the themes of the day and priorities identified by young people at the event.
You are welcome to attend either or both parts of the day.
We have limited the number of attendees and will have other measures in place to keep the event as Covid-safe as it can be. Where possible, please ensure that you have just one person per organisation coming.

If you would like to have a stall at the market place, please register your interest on Eventbrite.
