GM VCSE Assembly:What’s next for the VCSE sector in Greater Manchester?

What’s next for the VCSE sector in Greater Manchester? Have your say about what our sector could bring over the next 10 years to Greater Manchester.

PLEASE NOTE: Registration for this event is now closed. If you would like to attend, please e-mail who will be able to advise you further. 

The VCSE Devolution Reference Group ,with support from colleagues at the  Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), have developed a draft VCSE Policy Position Paper which sets out a long term ambition for the VCSE sector in Greater Manchester. 

The Position Paper is intended to be really ambitious, describing a future role equal to those of the state and business. It sets out what our sector could bring over the next 10 years to Greater Manchester people and communities, and what would need to be done to enable it, including investment. Click here to read the draft Executive Summary of the Position Paper. 

This assembly event will be the culmination of a number of consulation events and an online survey to gather feedback from the VCSE sector on the Position Paper prior to being finalised in November, following which an ‘implementation and transformation plan’ will be developed over the following year in each of the 10 localities as well as for Greater Manchester. 

The assembly will take place at the St Thomas Centre from 13.00 - 16. 00  but will be preceded by lunch and networking session. More details and full programme to follow. #GMVCSE10years

Please note, as this event is likely to be very popular, only one delegate place can be offered to each VCSE organisation in order to ensure that as many organisations can attend as possible from across GM. Multiple registrations from the same organisation will be rejected.
