Better Together Workshop Notes **Current**
Better Together VCS Forum Event **Current**
It was great to see such a high level of interest in the Good to Great Partnership working event today. Many thanks to all of you who came along and contributed. I thought it was a really lively and thought provoking morning, with a diverse mix of interesting people from right across the VCS spectrum. I’m sorry that not everyone who wanted to come, could get in on the day. I think we were taken by surprise at the level of interest…..and we certainly had a full house.
For those who couldn’t make it, I hope the attached copies of presentations and handouts will help, and we’ll keep you on the data base for circulation with any updates or developing work which arises from today.
As for next steps, just to confirm:
We will send out a note of the event, summarised as key thinking and action points.
We will also take on board comments and suggestions to refresh and develop handouts which illustrate the VCS landscape in the County, and circulate them.
Being mindful of forthcoming opportunities and challenges for the sector in the course of the coming year, particularly with respect to partnership working, we’ll also set up a resource base and information connection for you….this may take a little longer but bear with us!
We will be working through the various partnerships and networks in the County to consult on development of a bigger conference for the VCS, round about October time. If you have any strong thoughts or ideas about content you’d like, please do feed in to us.
Again, thanks for contributing your time and energy into this, and look forward to working alongside you into the future!
All best wishes,
Jo Laverick, Chair, Better Together Network.
