MACC - A Consultation Event for the Voluntary & Community Sector Infrastructure in Manchester

9 Feb 2012 - 16:03 by cheryl.mcalister

These consultation events are separate from Volunteer Centre Manchester so please do attend both if you wish.

We would be grateful if you could pass this information on to your colleagues, friends, e-mail networks, partner organisations and local groups. 

Macc would like to invite you to a special voluntary sector consultation. These events have been arranged throughout the city, over a number of days, to look at the development and changes to Voluntary and Community Sector Infrastructure in Manchester. 

Macc's role in the voluntary sector is evolving. As part of that we have committed to reviewing the management, governance and structure of Macc but above all to consult with the local sector about the kinds of support and activities you want us to run. We are now in a position to start this process however, we don’t want this to be a one-off exercise: it’s an ongoing dialogue. Our vision is that the consultation should be owned by and accountable to the local sector but we need your help. Please attend a session and let us know what you want from us now and in the future. 

We would urge you to attend if you:

  1. Are a small group run by volunteers for volunteers in Manchester
  2. Are a larger third sector organisation working in Manchester
  3. Have an interest in the Voluntary and Community Sector Infrastructure in Manchester 

The consultation events will be facilitated by Carol Savage of Duo Developments and a final report will be produced for wider circulation at the Macc launch at the end of March.
