Back in May we set out our plans to reshape and refresh the way in which Southwark’s voluntary and community groups and organisations come together to speak authoritatively on behalf of the whole sector and influence the decisions that matter.
Since then all of our existing groups and networks have met and there is a real enthusiasm to take this work forward as together we look to the future needs of the people of Southwark. We are in the process of formalising some new Networks that will focus issues impacting on BAME and Latin American communities.
We are also looking to set up a sustainable Network that brings together the voluntary and not for profit organisations that support women in Southwark. We have had a representative in place for some time to raise issues, but now want to provide a greater opportunity to fully represent the wider interests of those organisations.
If you would like to join up to this new Network or indeed any of the other neworks that we facilitate please contact Steve
