Our Forums

The Alliance is developing how it collects and represents the views of the sector. To accommodate the diverse needs of the VCS we want to enable organisations to feed in and receive information in a way that is useful to them.

Networking forums

The Alliance runs themed forums which are primarily about providing information to organisations working in a similar field. These Forums are currently operating:

We run the Mental Health & Physical Activity Group in conjunction with Active Gloucestershire.

Our Children & Young People’s forum is meeting at present. We do from time to time send targeted emails to people working to improve services to Children & Young People.  If you would like to be added to this list, please email info@glosvcsalliance.org.uk or complete the contact us form on this website.

Create Gloucestershire’s hold quarterly meetings for Arts and Culture organisations.

Click the links above to find out more information about these Forums or contact us.  Dates for future meetings will be advertised on the dedicated Forum web pages, in our newsletter, and sent to people who have already expressed interest in attending. Please contact us if you would like to be kept up to date.
