Clinks birthday: 20 years of supporting the voluntary sector in criminal justice

November 7, 2018 - 4:30pm


This year Clinks turns twenty and you are invited to celebrate with us. 
Join us as we reflect on Clinks' and the sector's achievements over the last two decades and look forward at our potential together over the next three years and beyond.

The event will include:

  • An insightful and interesting panel debate involving experts in the voluntary sector
  • A presentation from CEO Anne Fox on Clinks' strategy up to 2022, and the findings from the Clinks roadshows
  • A fantastic opportunity to meet Clinks staff and trustees, old and new, and network with others in the sector.

The event will also provide a chance to thank our current chair Dame Anne Owers, who has served us well and is stepping down at the end of her term.

We will begin at 4.30pm and finish with a reception at 7.30pm where food will be provided by our members The Clink. This event will also include our Annual General Meeting (AGM) - look out for the formal notice for the AGM which will be sent out in early October.

This promises to be a popular and well-attended event, please do book early to guarantee your place.


Free, booking necessary.
