VCS Strategy

VCS Strategy

Hackney CVS is working in partnership with the London Borough of Hackney to develop a new VCS Strategy to redefine the relationship between the Council and the Voluntary and Community Sector.

Last year we held an event to look at the challenges facing both the Voluntary and Community Sector and the Council.

You can view the discussions document here.
Read the report from the event here.

We followed that up with four focus groups to further explore what the strategy could achieve. Read more here.

Feedback from voluntary and community sector organisations suggests these discussions have helped the sector to take stock of the challenges they face and explore ways to address them.

The engagement has also helped the Council to develop a better understanding of the sector’s resilience, their views on intervention and the strategic support it needs.

We have recently held two focus groups on social action and premise.

We are planning further focus groups in September. Dates to follow.
