The Voice and Influence Partnership has been created to help make sure that individuals, groups and communities whose voices aren’t always heard are listened to, and are part of shaping Bristol’s future.
Our partnership is made up of leading equalities organisations and community champions from across Bristol.
By working together we can make sure our diverse communities are part of local decision making.
The Voice and Influence Partnership (VIP) was formed in 2018 to deliver voice and influence support for black and minority ethnic (BME) communities, disabled people, people of faith, LGBTQ+ communities and older people (55+) in Bristol.
We were funded to do this work by Bristol City Council for three and a quarter years and in September 2021 reached the end of that funding.
The Partnership will continue to work together and champion the voice of the communities we work with as individual organisations and a Partnership.
The Partnership is made up of The Care Forum, Ammerdown, Bristol Older People’s Forum, OTR Freedom, WECIL, Centre for Deaf and Hard of Hearing People, SARI and VOSCUR.
