BCVS is proud to provide a platform for third sector organisations in the local area to engage and communicate with Public and Statutory partners. By working hard to ensure we have a strong voice, we are in a position to influence decisions in our local area.

Third sector organisations and the people they work with, are directly affected by government policies. Therefore, it is important that the views of the third sector are reflected accurately in decision making.

BCVS host and attend various forums, including Bassetlaw Big Breakfast, in order to allow a platform to promote the voice of the sector. By becoming involved and attending these events, your organisation could:

  • Become involved in influencing the agenda locally
  • Be a part of networking opportunities across the District
  • Have the knowledge to take part in consultations
  • Access relevant training

An important aspect of what BCVS does is making sure that the local decision makers listen to the voices of the resident community and voluntary sector and the communities that they represent.
