ARVAC Annual Lecture
Greencoat Place, London
Keynote Speaker: Neil Jameson, Executive Director of Citizens UK
This year’s ARVAC Annual Lecture is taking place shortly after the 2015 General Election. The last five years have been ones of change and instability for the VCS and we want to use this opportunity to look ahead. In the 2010 General Election the three party leaders ended their campaigns by speaking at an event organised by London Citizens. We think it is highly appropriate to start the post 2015 election period with a discussion informed by the thoughts and ideas of Neil Jameson.
The changes across the sector will continue – we will see cuts in funding to small and important neighbourhood based organisations and the leadership role of the large national charities and agencies is contested. We hope that this year’s lecture will add to the discussions, conversations and informed deliberations about the next five years.
The 2015 ARVAC annual lecture is supported by I4P, Edge Hill University
