Here at Morroway House, we have put together an extensive programme of events aimed specifically at charities and not for profit and voluntary organisations.

Each speaker is an expert in their field and has tailored their content specifically for this audience. Every topic has been chosen to address the priorities identified in the extensive consultation that took place before Morroway House opened. If there is a topic that you would like covered or you would like to be considered as a Guest Speaker then please get in touch.

All the events are free to attend, all that we ask is for an optional donation to cover the cost of teas, coffees and refreshments. Spaces are limited so pre-booking for these events is essential.
