ACF Annual Conference 2018

Borders, Barriers and Boundaries

ACF’s annual conference for staff and trustees of foundations and grant-making charities from across the UK will take place on Wednesday 07 November 2017 at BMA House, Central London.

At this year’s conference we will be asking: can thinking about foundation practice in relation to borders, barriers and boundaries provide a helpful lens in disorientating times?
