In supporting the industry it is vital for charities to be able to understand the strategic needs of the industry, and also the roles that other organisations fulfil, through different routes, in supporting the industry.
To help to achieve this, since 2008, AFCP has held an Annual Forum, with the aim of bringing together leading authorities on key issues relevant to the industry e.g. training, careers and research, and to identify potential roles and opportunities for charities. See below the titles of these Forums with, where possible, some of the presentations. Please note that due to sensitivity of information, it has not always been possible to display this though a publicly available website.
To obtain information about each Forum follow the relevant date below:

In addition, charities and other organisations, manage a wide range of different processes and procedures. These range from advertising their presence to both prospective applicants and potential collaborators, through receiving and evaluating a proposal to monitoring and receiving reports from approved projects. Some of the forms that have been found to be useful in these processes are accessible from here.
