Cornwall VSF are delighted to announce another in our series of Shaping My Community events, this time in Bude.
We are working in partnership with Neetside Community Centre and Bude Coastal Community Team 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 Bude 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 February 25, 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 Bude 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 Neetside Community Centre and Bude Coastal Community Team to consider what further help may be available, such as funding and training.
The event will take place on 25 February, and run from 9.30am to 2.30pm, and there will be the opportunity to network over lunch.
You can find out more, and book your place, on our events page.
