By Voluntary Sector North West | 19 February 2024 | TAGS: Volunteering

On behalf of the Greater Manchester VCSE Leadership Group, you are invited to an online Greater Manchester VCSE Sector Manifesto Assembly Event on Tuesday 27 February 10 am-12.30 pm.

Voluntary Sector North West want to amplify your voice as a voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) group in Greater Manchester and are drafting a Greater Manchester VCSE Sector Manifesto to raise our collective voice, to use as a tool to engage with leaders and campaign together.

We know how much valuable and essential work the sector does on addressing the many challenges facing our communities, but we need this knowledge shared by our elected officials.

Through the upcoming Greater Manchester Mayoral election this May, the General Election likely in autumn, as well as the GM Devolution Trailblazer deal and single settlement 2025, we have key opportunities on the horizon to make our voice heard, and ensure the sector is at the heart of political decision making.

On the 27 February we will hold an assembly event for the sector to consult on what should be included in a draft manifesto for the Greater Manchester VCSE sector. Make the case for your communities, and tell us your ideas to make a real difference. We want to hear your thoughts and all about your priorities and challenges. Then join the meeting to discuss how we find solutions and shape our manifesto.

Register to join online.

Please share this invitation with your colleagues and networks, we want to hear from across the city region and the sector.
