Apply, Award, Assess. Repeat?

Modern grantmaking is changing and charities are leading the way in meeting the changing needs of individuals.

ACO members have tremendous power and influence to do good and improve people's lives, but face choices in how to best provide help. This event aims to pick up on the issues that need assessing and present innovations in providing support to beneficiaries. Join us for the best networking event in a sector that is rapidly moving to meet the many challenges of today and the future.
