Have your say at a local event – the closing date for this consultation is Sunday the 15th of September 2019
Bristol City Council’s (BCC) current funding to Voscur for VCSE Sector Infrastructure support is coming to an end in March 2020. This presents an opportunity to review the principles and priorities that sit behind BCC funding in preparation of a new grant invitation for the coming years.
What is this consultation about?
Voluntary, community and social enterprise groups (VCSE) play a vital role in the city. They are key partners in meeting the challenges and realising the opportunities set out in the BCC Corporate Strategy and One City Plan. The sector in all its diversity is a reflection of Bristol citizens’ drive and determination to improve their own communities.
The VCSE sector in Bristol plays a key role in:
* Addressing disadvantage and inequality
* Finding new ways to address the priorities and concerns of communities
* Strengthening the voice and influence of communities and citizens
* Promoting inclusion
* Enabling citizens to take action
* Growing social, economic and democratic wellbeing
This consultation is seeking the views of VCSE groups and organisations in the city to inform the priorities and approach of the next VCSE support grant, which will be decided by Cabinet.
