14th September, 9:30am – 12:00pm
Mor Workspace, Newquay
As members will be aware, Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum has recently started discussions with the Learning Partnership for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly about forming a new group of VCSE organisations. For VSF, this represents a way forward that both protects our long-term financial future and provides new opportunities to support our members better.
Four organisations are considering this move at the moment: The Learning Partnership for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has been in discussion with Nature Workshops, Safer Stronger Consortium and Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum. The aim is that the new structure places them in an excellent position to respond to the challenge of supporting people in a continued climate of change and reducing resources. All four organisations already work closely together on a range of projects and share some directors between boards. The group will seek new ways of working in partnership with the public and private sectors to deliver services to those in need.
This event is open to all VSF members and stakeholders to discuss the proposals in more detail and help shape Cornwall VSF’s future. Please come along to hear our plans and share your views. Any firm proposals will then be put to the Cornwall VSF membership later in the Autumn.
