VAN has been invited to attend a working lunch at Lord Hill Hotel, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, this thursday 19th April at 11.30am.
"You may be aware of plans to develop a Voluntary Sector Assembly for Shropshire. This is a joint project between all members of the voluntary & community sector and a wide range of partners represented on the Shropshire Partnership. The join aim for the VCS Assembly is to provide an effective forum to improve the representation and engagement of all parts of the third sector (VCS) and to give the sector a stronger voice in the development of key policies, strategies and public initiatives.
The VCS and Shropshire Partnership are currently appointing a Co-ordinator to help in the development of the Assembly and to work to improve relations between the sector and LSP partners. The working unch will give you the opportunity to meet the new co-ordinator.
There will be an opportunity for open discussion and questions"
Short notice but it would be useful for a VAN representative to get along to this meeting and report back.
