The Future of the Third Sector: How the South West can be pioneers for change

By Anita Jaynes on 28 April, 2022

The Business Exchange South West Charity Conference & Expo in partnership with 3SG and sponsors Milsted Langdon and Stone King is set to return to Bath Racecourse on Thursday 19th May 2022 with a theme of positive change.

A number of seminars are planned for the day including a special session with Louise Harvey, Executive Director of The Foundation Fund at St John’s Foundation. Louise will discuss how the charity and not-for-profit sector in the South West can work collaboratively to be pioneers for change. Louise will talk about how change is needed in terms of access to funding and what we can learn from others nationally and internationally to help our communities thrive.

In the 18 years Louise has worked for St John’s, she has developed an exceptional knowledge of both the Foundation and the local community. Louise has been a driving force for cross-sector working and collaboration, striving to continuously extend the reach and impact of St John’s core services, whilst also supporting its employees and local organisations to realise their potential.

Louise uses her passion, energy and ‘no challenge too great’ attitude to break down barriers to bring the Third Sector, education and businesses together. She was recently invited to be part of a national Third Sector steering group organised by the Times newspaper to drive positive change.

The Future of the Third Sector: How the South West can be pioneers for change seminar will take place at 13:15-13:45 on Thursday 19th May at Bath Racecourse. The South West Charity Conference & Expo is free to attend thanks to the support of our sponsors Milsted Langdon and Stone King but booking is essential.
