The Annual Catalyst Conference is the chance for VCSE organisations in the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees to come together to discuss issues, network and learn more about what is happening.
The Conference, taking place on Friday 2nd November from 8:45am till 16:30pm, is titled “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” – a reference to how the VCSE can continue to be effective despite all the turbulence caused by public spending cuts, Brexit and other external factors.
