The Big Event 2014

8 Jul 2014 - 9:30am

The Big Event is the largest annual voluntary sector gathering in East Sussex and 2014 marks the sixth year that it has taken place. 

This year’s event will focus on ‘The Voluntary Sector, Volunteering and the Economy’.
We will look at:

  •  how the sector already contributes to the economy and growth and what further opportunities are
  •  what organisations need to think about to play a role in this
  •  how the VCS can work more closely with the public and private sector to bring a change to the economy, job growth and development of our county

Part of the discussions throughout the day will also be around the growing role of volunteering, the development of informal volunteering, volunteering into work and Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs).
