Forth Valley Conference 2019

About the 2019 Conference


Our second Forth Valley Third Sector Conference, held in partnership with our colleagues at CVS Falkirk & District and SVE, took place on Wednesday 13th February at Alva Academy in Clackmannanshire.

Anna Fowlie, the new Chief Executive of the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO),  spoke on workforce issues faced in the third sector, while in the afternoon Karyn McCluskey, Chief Executive of Community Justice Scotland, talked about the part communities play in offender repayment.

They were joined on the day by the Deputy Director for Scotland of the Big Lottery, Neil Ritch, and Paul Reddish, Chief Executive of Project Scotland, along with 12 other leading speakers in their fields, covering a wide range of workshops, all based around this year’s theme: “Growing Your Communities”.

In addition to speakers and workshops, attendees had access to surgeries from Firstport and the Association of Charity Independent Examiners (ACIE), a panel discussion, marketplace, and lots of networking opportunities.
