Thematic Alliances

As part of the work Cornwall VSF is undertaking to strengthen the VCSE sector locally, we have set up Thematic Alliances. Voluntary sector organisations working in the same ‘business system’ can use these to meet. They discuss the issues they have in common, and build partnerships, supporting and strengthening the sector. The Members of of the Strategic Alliance (VERA) are each in the process of setting up their own Thematic Alliances, with several already operational. Cornwall VSF is leading this collaboration to help you to help others.

The current list of operating Thematic Alliances is here, together with the contact details of their chairs.
