Are you a charity or social enterprise wanting to learn more about Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR)? Join us for our GET SITR Anniversary Ceremony on 4th July!

Why you should attend: 

  • Hear about the experiences and key learnings of charities and social enterprises who have used Social Investment Tax Relief
