Membership Forum 5.9.18 - News Update

Thanks to all who attended the Membership Forum on 5th September.

The Forum aims to create a shared space where DVSC members can come together, exchange ideas, share knowledge and best practice, discuss issues of mutual concern, and develop the third sector voice.

We discussed the agenda items and shared intelligence and views including providing feedback about recent engagement between DVSC’s Third Sector Influencing Group and Denbighshire County Council. We also agreed on the issues to be raised further with Denbighshire County Council and other public sector partners in the coming months.

We will shortly be sending out a survey asking for your views on:

  • Working Denbighshire Paper

  • BCUHB Draft Third Sector Strategy

As the membership body for the third sector in Denbighshire, and the leadership body promoting voluntary action and social enterprise in Denbighshire, we very much welcome your views and opinions on the key issues and would love to increase the number of participants attending this Forum, so join us and become part of a movement for change in Denbighshire.

If you have agenda items that you would like included for the next meeting please do let us know.
