Tell your networks about Beacon

We are very grateful to all the CVS organisations, infrastructure charities and individuals who have helped to promote the Beacon Programme so far. With your help we have reached hundreds of Chairs / Vice Chairs of smaller charities.

The programme of workshops launched in September 2018 and we now have dates booking well into 2019 in nine locations across England as well as webinars for those who can't attend.

If you would like to help promote Beacon in your newsletter, on your website or via social media, here is some text for you to use.

If you would like additional information or logos or photos, please get in touch via
