Civil Society Virtual Coffee Club: Celebrating grassroots organisations

  • Start: 31st May, 2023 @ 11:00AM
  • End: 31st May, 2023 @ 12:00PM
  • Online event

Come and join Civil Society Consulting for their next virtual coffee and chat club!

This time, they will be discussing the relationship between councils and the VCS, including the role of grassroots organisations. As always, this is a friendly, low-pressure and inclusive opportunity to connect and discuss your ideas and questions.

In this session you will:

  • Hear from Jo Kibble from the Local Government Association (LGA) on what the LGA have recently learnt about the relationships between councils and their local voluntary and community sector across the country.
  • Celebrate the work and discuss the role of grassroots organisations in building healthier, more equal and more cohesive communities – and hear your views and experiences.
  • Announce some good news concerning their ‘Steps to Sustainability’ programme (S2S)!

About these coffee clubs:

The Civil Society Consulting (CSC) coffee club is an informal, chatty event. The idea is for the CSC team and friends and partners in the sector to come together, share their learning, and exchange tips as they move forward towards sustainability.

They’d love to hear any questions you may like to discuss in advance, so please shoot any thoughts, talking points or questions over to rebecca@civilsocietyconsulting.co.uk.

About Steps to Sustainability:

Civil Society Consulting provides free consultancy support to grassroots organisations. Long-standing inequities in the civil society sector came into sharp relief at the start of the pandemic: minority-led organisations were at greater risk of closure, but demand for their support was higher than ever. In response, they developed a programme to support and develop minority-led organisations – ‘Steps to Sustainability’. Through S2S, we provide hands-on support to co-produce tangible outputs for organisations (e.g. an impact report, a new website) whilst coaching and upskilling their team(s). In the spirit of ‘learning by doing’ S2S focuses less on learning and more on doing.
