PAVO Conference & AGM 2020

Counting on Communities; developing the new normal

16 - 20 November 2020 - 

Our Annual Conference and General Meeting 2020 was held virtually and provided an opportunity to reflect upon the voluntary sector’s role in supporting people through the coronavirus pandemic, and how organisations were planning for the ‘new normal’.
The week consisted of a number of online workshops focusing on different aspects of developing the ‘new normal’:
A Green Recovery – (Buildings & Transport),  Financial Stability, Equalities, Safety, Digital, Social (volunteering), & Health & Wellbeing.
The week culminated in our AGM on Friday 20th November 9.30am with messages from Vaughan Gething MS, Minister for Health & Social Care and Sophie Howe, Future Generations Commissioner.
