VCSE Infrastructure Support review

The Council’s current funding for the VCSE Sector Infrastructure Support, delivered by Voscur, is coming to an end in March 2020. This presents us with an opportunity to review the principles and priorities that sit behind our grant funding to shape a new grant invitation.

We recognise that VCSE’s themselves are the experts in the VCSE sector and the nature of the support it needs. We want to hear from the VCSE because the principles and priorities we are proposing to shape the service are intended to meet the changing needs of the sector. Your views will inform the approach which will be decided by Cabinet in December 2019.

There are a series of events and places are limited. The events are expected to be popular, so please register via Eventbrite for your chosen event, and only send one person from your organisation:

Future events are also planned for equalities-led VCSE organisations. As well as the events, an online survey will be added to the consultation hub. Your views will help inform the approach which will be decided by BCC Cabinet in December 2019, so please do take the time to register for one of these events, and look out for the survey.
