Monday 17th September saw members of VODG (the Voluntary Organisations Disability Group) come together with investors and sponsors for our annual conference focused on systems, leadership and social change. The full programme can be accessed here. This is the event roundup.
Steve Scown (chair of VODG) has called on the sector to contribute beyond its organisational boundaries. “We know parts of the system are gearing up for reform – progress in Manchester and other areas in devolving power to regions – the development of the long-term plan – continuing debates about integration and how much it may or may not be part of a funding solution. … As organisations we have a responsibility to challenge and improve our own organisations, but as leaders I believe our responsibility strecthes further into our sector and, beyond, into society.”
We’re looking forward to @VODGmembership’s 2018 Conference later today. Come and say hi at our stand, and talk to us about the sleep-in report, engagement, or perhaps employee and volunteer safeguarding. See you all soon. #VODG18
