Consultation on how the council invests in the voluntary sector
Southampton City Council is undertaking a 12 week consultation into proposals for a strategic approach to voluntary sector investment (including voluntary and community organisations, faith organisations, charities and social enterprises).
Over the past year the council has conducted an overarching review to identify the best way to utilise this investment to ensure it contributes directly to the council’s priority outcomes. It recognises the significant value the voluntary sector and volunteering brings to the city and the way it can help the council transform, particularly through prevention and early intervention work.
The consultation runs until 24 February 2017. Full details of the proposals and an online survey can be found on the Southampton City Council website: http://www.southampton.gov.uk/council-democracy/have-your-say/voluntary-sector-grants.aspx
