A Bottom’s Up Approach to Creating a Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Alliance in Sunderland
Posted on 6th March, 2020
In the spirit of true partnership making, Sunderland City Council, Gentoo Housing Group and Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group (All Together Better) together with the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector (VCSE) are on an exciting journey to establish an Alliance that shapes the future provision of infrastructure support services, to ultimately support the growth and development of the VCSE sector in Sunderland.
Back in September 2019, a VCSE partnership-led engagement event, known as Voluntary Organisations In Sunderland Engage (VOISE) was held, with over 130 VCSE representatives in attendance. The event was a huge success in discussing what infrastructure support for Sunderland should look like in the future, given the complexity of the sector over the years.
