The last year has been so tumultuous politically – both in the UK and across the world – that we felt conference was an ideal opportunity to stop and reflect on this particular moment in time, exploring the impact on the work of trusts and foundations. We have developed a new structure that sees the morning plenary extended to create space for this to happen, making the most of having over 300 members all together in the same room.

Through a keynote speech, a plenary discussion, and 14 break-out sessions, the conference will explore the theme of Navigating the now, alongside a wide range of topical issues of interest to foundations.

Pre-conference meal: Tuesday 07 November 
6.30pm for 7pm
Café in the Crypt, Trafalgar Square, London.
You are very welcome to attend our pre-conference meal to meet colleagues and relax the evening before the conference. Please note that booking is essential.
