State of the Sector Research
In the New Year, we will be undertaking a piece of work to understand more about the voluntary and community sector Milton Keynes. We will be sending out some survey questions which will help to create a really good picture of what groups there are operating in Milton Keynes. There are some standard questions about the size of your organisation, the number of volunteers, employees, trustees, some indication of your turnover, your legal structure, what challenges you face and what opportunities you see out there. Watch this space for more details!
Storytelling and Robots
This week NESTA held a showcase event for the end of the project, and our wonderful group of volunteers, Catherine, Marianna, Linda, and Jeff all traveled down to London with Philippa our Storyteller to present their story. They had wonderful feedback from the participants and we are delighted that they have been able to have such an impact. Thank you all very much!
