Published : 27/05/22 | Categories: News |

gofod3 is back again this year from the 20-24 June 2022 and with less than a month to go we are excited to tell you what’s on the programme so you can start booking.

gofod3 is an event organised by WCVA, in collaboration with the voluntary sector. It is the biggest voluntary sector event of its kind in Wales.

Whether you’re a trustee, staff member, volunteer or all three, gofod3 is designed especially for people involved in Welsh voluntary organisations.

With a whole week of events on offer, including an exciting and busy schedule of speakers, masterclasses, panel debates and workshops, we can guarantee there’ll be something for everyone.

gofod3 was first established in spring 2017 as an annual, one-day event in Cardiff. Forced to cancel the event in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were thrilled to be able to bring back gofod3 back last year, when it was held online for the first time over the course of a week.


Our full programme is now live! We have over 70 events lined-up throughout the week ranging from conversations about the climate crisis and talks on crowdfunding, to discussing what the sector can do to ease the cost-of-living crisis.

It’s going to be a week bursting with discussion and ideas! You can join Grow Cardiff to talk about social prescribing or the Eden project to discuss reconnecting communities post-pandemic.

If those aren’t your cup of tea we have a variety of sessions covering funding and fundraising, safeguarding or cyber security and many more such as:

  • Equality, diversity and inclusion
  • Digital
  • Bilingualism
  • Impact
  • Volunteering
  • Running your organisation
  • Marketing and communications

It’s a phenomenal selection. So don’t waste any time! Go check out the programme and register you FREE place now!

This is your unique space to reflect, learn and plan for the future.


Feedback from last year’s event showed that people really enjoyed the online format and many actually preferred it. Based on this feedback, and wanting to make the week as accessible as possible, gofod3 remains online this year but with the option of taking part in some face-to-face networking sessions, thanks to our Third Sector Support Wales (TSSW) partners.

And we must thank our sponsors, Darwin Gray, Keegan & Pennykid, Pugh Computers and The Open University, for their support, both financially and for the events they’ve chosen to run.

For the team at WCVA, it is extremely important for us that gofod3 offers every organisation – large or small – the opportunity to showcase their invaluable work and develop skills for the future.

We hope you’re as excited as we are and cannot wait to see you all in June.
