VOF - Main

The 4 June Main Voluntary Organisation Forum asks Where does the Voluntary and Community Sector fit in with local strategies?

The local voluntary and community sector has long since been a staple part of the community, delivering a wide range of services mainly within the preventative field that seeks to improve the social and economic wellbeing of residents.  

Whilst KCSC recognise the challenges that face residents requires a sector that is responsive to those challenges and is able to continuously adapt to changing needs, we also advocate that a strong and stable sector is what's required.
