Working With the VCS events provide an opportunity for voluntary and community organisations to come together with local authority officers (and others) on a quarterly basis. Each event focuses on a key focus topic, but there is always plenty of time to network, share opinions, provide updates and develop new ideas. Everyone is welcome. Before the COVID-19 pandemic these events ran quarterly in community venues across the borough. However the current situation means that we have had to move these events online for the time being and we are also looking to hold them more regularly via zoom.
