TBE Charity Conference & Expo | Wiltshire Community Foundation

By Nick Batten on 3 June, 2024

The sixth annual Business Exchange South West Charity Conference & Expo is returning to Bath Racecourse on Thursday 13th June 2024.

The theme of the day is ‘Driving Positive Change’ with the aim to open up conversations around societal issues and how we can all work collectively to make a difference in our community.

The event is being delivered in partnership with our sponsors Milsted LangdonSt John’s Foundation and Stone King.

In the run up to the conference, we’ll be featuring some of the organisations who will be exhibiting on the day to find out more about their mission and what delegates can expect to learn from them at the event.

Today we hear from Fiona Oliver, Joint Chief Executive of Wiltshire Community Foundation…

Please give us an overview of your charity

Wiltshire Community Foundation changes lives by connecting people who care with causes that matter. We work with local philanthropists and donors who want to support projects which will help disadvantaged people living in Wiltshire and Swindon. We run an extensive range of grants programmes supporting projects that help some of our most vulnerable people including those living in poverty, the homeless, those struggling with their mental health and young people who need a helping hand to realise their full potential.

What will you be promoting on the day?

We will be promoting the service we provide to philanthropists and local givers who are keen to make a difference in the county and may be finding it challenging to know where and how to target their giving. We will also be promoting our new Women and Girls Fund and our new Care Leavers programme. 

What have you learnt/enjoyed about past TBE Charity Conference & Expos?

We always enjoy participating in the TBE Charity Conference & Expos. They provide us with a wonderful opportunity to meet with a wide range of people who have a keen interest in the charity sector and in making a difference. We always learn something and come away from the Conference inspired and with new contacts.

What are you most looking forward to about the day?

Meeting up with everyone and sharing good practice. The networking is always great and the breakfast is very good too!
