Voluntary Sector Summit

Posted on

We recognise that the voluntary sector is on the frontline of youth work in our communities and often we are so busy ‘doing’ and working our socks off to make a difference with our young people that we don’t always realise what others around us are doing. Each organisation in our sector is such a valuable resource that now more than ever we need to pull together and think about the work we are doing, what it is that our young people need to keep them safe, and how we can work more effectively together to help them.

The Trustees of ECVYS would like to formally invite you to a summit at Chelmsford Cathedral on the 14th January from 6.15pm-8pm.

Alongside partners from the Violence & Vulnerability unit, ECC, Healthwatch and the Police we would love you to come along and be a part of this important summit to highlight what we are all doing, and think about how we can best serve the young people in Essex and keep them safe from harm.

We will also be encouraging groups who come along to share (for no more than 2 minutes each) about what youth work they run in their communities, any specific work they are doing that links to the issue, and what they feel needs to happen to tackle the issue further. Please let us know at officeadmin@ecvys.org.uk if you would be prepared to fill one of these slots as we would love to hear from you.

Thank you so much, please do spread the word about the Summit to anyone in the voluntary sector that you feel has something to share or indeed anyone who is just interested in this topic and would like to listen in over a coffee and a cake!

Hopefully together we can be testimony to the great work that is happening in Essex through the sector (including Southend & Thurrock) and create a valuable way forward for the future of young people’s safety.
