AGM 2020

Join us at 11am on Saturday 07 November 2020 for our 34th Annual General Meeting.

Be part of our AGM on 07 November

We’re excited to welcome you to our 2020 AGM this year. Social distancing measures mean that we’ll be doing things a little differently, with the chance to join the event online from the safety of your own home.

The AGM gives all our members the chance to pose questions to our CEO and trustees, so you can discover what the charity has been up to in the past year, as well as getting a glimpse at future plans. (All questions need to be submitted prior to the event by either completing the AGM Question Form or a Proxy Voting Form)

We hope that live-streaming the event gives even more members the chance to get involved, however if you won’t be available, please fill out our Proxy Voting Form to cast your vote and send us your questions.
