'Brave New World Revisited' VCSE Conference 2016

Get Involved

In the last few months the VOCAL VCSE Leaders Forum in Salford have come together to draft a Manifesto for the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. 

We have developed a VCSE Manifesto to highlight the ongoing contribution that VCSE organisations can make in Salford. The Manifesto is designed to clearly encapsulate what we think are the key messages we want to make, particularly to public sector colleagues. It challenges partners to effectively engage with and invest in the sector so that local people and communities can help to address the challenges and embrace the opportunities of the future as equal partners. 

Swap, Shop and Share

Swap, Shop, Share is an initiative that Salford CVS, alongside other members of the VOCAL VCSE Leaders’ Forum, are keen to develop and promote in Salford.

We all know that with austerity continuing to bite that resources are valuable and we need to maximise our use of them. Whether cash, buildings, equipment, know-how or labour, our resources need to be treated as the valuable assets they are.

Given that there are over 1,300 community groups, voluntary agencies and social enterprises in Salford, all with their own assets, surely there is scope for more swapping, more shopping, and more sharing?

 

Join Salford CVS today!

Salford CVS is a membership organisation and we have been proudly operating in Salford on behalf of our members since 1973. Membership is free and is open to all voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations who meet the definition of ‘not for private profit’ and who deliver services in the city of Salford.

As a membership organisation, Salford CVS’ key relationships lie with its member organisations and with the wider sector in Salford which comprises 1,364 VCSE organisations. We currently have around 600 members – all of whom are VCSE sector organisations that operate in Salford.
