Foresight in the North West

NCVO Third Sector Foresight is very pleased to announce that we will be working with Voluntary Sector North West (VSNW) over the next few months to understand how the world is changing and how organisations in the North West region can use this knowledge to make better strategic decisions.

The partnership will provide:
• New insights about the trends and forces impacting on organisations in our region
• Training workshops for infrastructure organisations
• Free copies of pocket guides exploring changing funding, volunteering, population changes and other crucial topics

For more information about Foresight and the issues it touches on, you can read this article, Facing the Future without Fear.

The workshops will take place as follows:
Tuesday 6 July  Aimed at CEOs and chairs
Thursday 8 July  Aimed at development workers
