Forums and Partnerships
There are a wide range of forums available to the voluntary sector. These forums are an opportunity to discuss issues, network, receive advice and guidance and promote your organisation.
BVA are working to grow the number of groups working together to form new forums and partnerships. This initiative is in its early stages but plans are to interact with various organisations and other forums, identify what services are on offer, identify gaps in provision, try to work better together, avoid duplication or confusion and promote services and information wherever possible. Issues to be considered are getting more people to utilise services, gain required volunteers, identify required training, transport and funding plus publicise available provision and encourage networking.
