The conference was held in Manchester at the end of November with more than 300 delegates hearing keynotes from speakers including Minister for Civil Society Nick Hurd, director of public policy and parliamentary affairs at Help the Hospices Jonathan Ellis and Joe Saxton, founder and driver of ideas at nfpSynergy. There were also a number of showcase sessions which shared innovative ideas from hospices and other organisations on working with volunteers, the homeless, and much more.
