Give us your views on current & future support needs for the voluntary and community sector

Please see the information below sent on behalf of Kate Bowman, Commissioning and Procurement Officer at Newcastle City Council

The Council want to hear from stakeholders in the voluntary and third sector about their views on current and future infrastructure support services.Newcastle City Council continues to place great value on the contribution that the voluntary and community sector makes to the life and social fabric of Newcastle. It recognises that a thriving and vibrant sector is vital to ensuring that residents enjoy a high quality of life with opportunities to improve their own health and wellbeing, the wellbeing of their families, friends and neighbours, and the communities they live and work in. The purpose of the service is to provide independent infrastructure support for the sector, supporting it to develop and improve its internal capacity and shape the sector.  This could include: information, advice, business support, networking and volunteering opportunities and an opportunity for the Council and public services to keep the sector informed.You are invited to take part in this consultation to provide as much feedback as possible about your needs and requirements from this service, your experiences of services you have used, your awareness about services (whether or not you have used them) and your future needs, so that Newcastle City Council can shape the contract appropriately.This online survey is part of the opportunity we are offering for you to give us your feedback.

The Council officers will also hold an in-person event on 1st March in Newcastle.We can provide the survey or questions in different format, such as large print and you can contact with any questions.
