The ACEVO Gathering of Social Leaders: One Year to Go
7 May 2014, London

The Gathering of Social Leaders is ACEVO’s flagship spring event where we bring together the most influential public and political leaders with ACEVO members – charity and social enterprise chief executives – from across the UK.

This year’s event is entitled One Year to Go.

It takes place exactly one year before the General Election of 7 May 2015.

This day will be about putting the voluntary sector – and your concerns – at the top of the political agenda. This is the best and only opportunity to ask serious questions of the writers of the major political party manifestos, representatives from all three major parties, and the Minister and Shadow Minister for Civil Society.

It will be the best venue to influence, discuss and share ideas.


Nick Hurd MP, Minister for Civil Society, will lead a discussion on putting the Sector at the top of the political agenda.

Francis Maude MP, Minister for the Cabinet Office, will lead a discussion on public services reform and the Conservative manifesto.

Lisa Nandy MP, Shadow Minister for Civil Society, will lead a discussion about innovation and sustaining our sector’s future
