A key aim of BBWCVS is to help voluntary and community organisations to work together, to network and to have a voice. We do this by:
There are a number of existing forums or networks that you may wish to join, participate in, or receive information that maybe of use and assistance with your activities both in Basildon and across Essex.
The following list is not intended to be exhaustive but currently play important strategic roles. They all provide voluntary and community organisations with an opportunity to work together to share information, experience and good practice and to meet to discuss issues affecting them, their members and clients.
Criteria for participation can differ but if you are interested please contact our Chief Officer for further information.
BBWCVS facilitates and hosts a network/forum that meets on a quarterly basis. Groups meet to discuss shared interests and concerns and engage with local partnerships at a strategic level.
The CVS also holds periodic meetings of the Basildon Chief Officer Group. For further information on participating please contact Chris Evans on 01268 294781.
Finally, if you are aware of other networks you feel that it would be useful please let us know and we will be happy to post here.
