VCSE Engagement Strategy

Over the last 9 months the VCS Alliance and our Public Sector partners have been reviewing and redesigning the way we support the VCSE. As a result, we have produced a document that sets out the activities that will be undertaken over of the next 3 years to improve engagement between Gloucestershire VCSE and the Public Sector.

This strategy is aimed at ensuring the Public Sector and VCSE priorities are aligned and that both sectors can work closely together for the benefit of individuals in the county.

This document has been written following extensive consultation that has taken place between July 2017 and February 2018. We now feel we are in a position to understand the requirements of both sectors and support high level engagement, partnership building and service design.

We have identified 6 core strands that we need to develop in order to support the sector – these strands have been created through an extensive consultation exercise with both the Public Sector and VCSE. Each strand has a detailed set of actions against it, which will be delivered between April 2018 and March 2021.
