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 South Kerrier Alliance CIC 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 all the South Kerrier parishes (* for the full list see below) 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 October 8, 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 South Kerrier (* list below) 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 South Kerrier Alliance CIC to consider what further help may be available, such as funding and training.

The event will run from 9.30am to 2.30pm,  and there will be the opportunity to network over lunch – please bring your own.  Please book your ticket on the Event page. Many thanks – we look forward to seeing you on 8 October.
