Please be advised that an extraordinary meeting has been organised. All groups are invited to attend this meeting.
This will give the sector an opportunity to shape and influence the specification for the voluntary sector infrastructure contract, which is being planned as an Alliance model to commence April 2018 – March 2021.
VAC, NBF and other two other providers are working towards the Alliance model. Neither VAC nor NBF will be present at the meeting.
As this meeting takes place over lunchtime please feel free to bring your own lunch and refreshments.
Details from a recent Calderdale MBC press release:
The Council is also looking at the way the voluntary sector is supported – for example, their access to advice, development opportunities and chances to get involved in wider decision making.
The Council is working with Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group and the voluntary and community sector to develop a new approach to supporting local groups. Groups will have the opportunity to share their views as part of this. The aim is to have a new contract for services to support the sector by April 2018.
