We need your views on our new strategy

We are launching our new strategy and we are looking forward to bringing a new approach to volunteering in the region. However, we need the input of our communities, organisations and local people to help us shape the strategy and action plan, ensuring our work is fit for purpose and meets the needs of the wider third sector. We can’t do everything, but it is important that we do the right things where we can, with the resources we have. Therefore, we will be running an online survey and holding consultation events. See the dates for our engagement below.

We are here to renew our offer of support to the third sector and volunteers. In addition to our ongoing support with funding, governance, and training, we also want to play a stronger role in the recruitment, training, advice, and matching volunteers with local organisations and their causes, whether that’s for a one-off activity or a regular requirement. Our expert team is here to help – see more details below.

We will be hosting several events in the coming weeks and months, which will enable people to feed into the consultation. To find out more and book, just click on the title to go to Eventbrite.
