Standing Together: Voluntary Sector Response and Recovery
Having come together to provide and sustain such an amazing response to the pandemic we now need to collaborate to think about the challenges that lie ahead and how we, as a sector, can come together, mobilise you, our members and our collective resources to continue to deliver alongside our communities as we look to rebuild and come back better. We know it’s really tough at the moment. We’re here to help. To find out how, why not join us at our upcoming interactive Members’ Event and AGM.
Venue: Online on Zoom
When: Friday 29 January 2021 – 11am to 12.30pm
It will be an opportunity to reflect on all that we and you, our members, have achieved during this extraordinary Coronavirus pandemic. Importantly we’ll also look to the future and the role of Community First as a modern CVS in supporting and championing the sector. What can we do to engage and support you? How can we collaborate to meet the new and emerging challenges facing our communities?
Find out more about our renewed membership offer including our exciting plans for a programme of events in 2021 exploring key issues in health, social action, the economy and young people interspersed with masterclasses on marketing, business and financial planning, income generation and measuring our impact.
