Voluntary and Community Sector

Support and development services for the Voluntary and Community Sector in Hampshire

Invitation

Hampshire County Council, in partnership with the District and Borough Councils across Hampshire recently sent out an on-line questionnaire asking what development and support services your organisation or community group needs and where you currently go to get information and support.

We received 720 responses across a cross section of local groups and organisations. Thank you once again if you responded with your views. As a follow up to the survey, Hampshire County Council and District and Borough Councils in agreement with the Council’s of Voluntary Service in Hampshire would like to invite you to attend:

A Workshop: To help shape future development and support services for the voluntary and community sector

The workshop will provide you with an opportunity to:

  • Find out what you told us – results of the survey  
  • Discuss with others what these results actually mean for your organisation
  • Talk to other organisations and groups about the support you have access to
  • Have your say about the future shape of support services and the future of Hampshire’s Voluntary and Community Sector
