Shaping My Community – Launceston

5th November 2019, 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Launceston town

Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum and The Orchard Centre would like to invite you to attend Shaping My Community: Launceston

Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum is the voice of voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Our aim is to work with others to create a thriving and effective voluntary sector.

Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum is working in partnership with The Orchard Centre to bring together organisations and individuals that are already doing excellent work in your local community.  We know that by working together we stand a better chance of achieving and sustaining the changes we all seek. We believe that grassroots initiatives always stand a greater chance of making an impact than top-down campaigns imposed by others.

We hope that by helping to bring you together to exchange ideas and information we can enhance social action to the benefit of your local area. You know the strengths and assets of your community better than we do, and you understand its problems too.

Our aim is to encourage and facilitate this social action in Launceston to benefit your local area. You know the strengths and assets of your area better than we do, and we would like to invite you to a workshop on November 5 at Launceston Town Hall, where we will work with you to explore these important issues, and investigate solutions. Our aim is to grow local capacity to act, and work with you as equals.

Anyone who carries out voluntary work or is thinking about becoming a volunteer in the Launceston area is welcome to attend, together with public sector staff, faith groups, and other interested organisations and individuals.

This workshop will work with you to explore the issues that are important to you, and investigate solutions. The outcomes of this workshop will feed into discussions we are having with The Orchard Centre also working groups will be set up to consider what further help may be available, such as funding and training for Launceston.

The event will run from 9.30am to 2.30pm, and there will be the opportunity to network over a FREE lunch.

You can book your ticket below.
