Beacon: A unique programme

Are you Chair of a smaller charity?  We have heard about what inspires, troubles and frustrates you. This programme has been developed to meet your needs.

Chairs shaping the programme 

We consulted with over 150 smaller charities and our advisory group to develop the programme. Our workshops have been piloted with small groups of Chairs.
