VCSE Strategic Forum meeting
A big thank you to everyone who attended the VCSE Strategic Forum ‘special’ this month. The meeting focused on Working with Children and Young People, and despite funding challenges there were plenty of really positive stories delivered, including the very specialist work of Barnardos in Somerset; Somerset Film; and InspirEd, to the universal youth work across the county from Young Somerset.
Big Lottery and Young Enterprise Somerset talked about the new initiatives these organisations are introducing, which will help support groups working with children and young people. Delegates also had the opportunity to show their creative side and experience part of the workshop Somerset County Council have been using over the summer as they consult with children and young people about the Young People’s Plan.
For more information on all of these items, including the presentations see the Somerset VCSE Forum website here.
