Shaping my Community – Torpoint

4th July 2018, 9:30 am - 2:30 pm


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 thriing and effective voluntary sector.

Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum is working in partnership with C.H.A.T. (Community Health Around Torpoint) 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 us.

Our aim is to encourage and facilitate this social action in Torpoint 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 July 4th, 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 in the Torpoint area is welcome to attend, together with public sector staff, faith groups, and other interested organisations and individuals.

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.

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 C.H.A.T to consider what further help may be available, such as funding and training.

The event will run from 9.30am to 2.30pm, and include a free lunch, plus opportunity to network.  Please book your ticket below, so we know numbers for the catering, and let us know of any dietary or access requirements by email.

Many thanks – we look forward to seeing you on the 4th July.
