Speaker at a lecturn during last year's Annual Conference

Annual Conference and AGM 2022

We were delighted to welcome 50 delegates in person and 40 online for our hybrid Annual Conference for members and grant holders.

The conference was curated around the theme of ‘Building Resilience in Education’ and was opened by BFSS President David Lammy MP. Featuring presentations, panels and round table discussions,  it explored the lasting effects of the pandemic and how young people’s education can be progressed in the new world we are now navigating.

After two years of remote working, the event was an opportunity for our members and grant holders to come together to network, share learning and work on future solutions together.

The day was interactive, with all attendees having a chance to contribute their thoughts on virtual education, the wellbeing of young people, life after the FCDO cuts, and more.

The fully hybrid conference, which took place immediately after our AGM, was open to all members and grant holders and enabled us to bring together a community committed to helping us deliver BFSS’ vision of educational opportunity for all.
