About this Event
Planning in a time of uncertainty
Despite the current uncertainty we are all facing, here at York CVS we are pressing ahead with developing our Strategic Plan. We have been in York for over 80 years and have our sights set on 100! We are organising a series of Focus Groups to inform our future direction and would love you to join us and tell us what you think.
The Focus Groups will explore ways in which the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector can tackle pressing social challenges, working closely with partners in the public and private sectors. We know the sector is good at responding to needs as they arise and the pandemic has demonstrated this more than ever. The question is, can we have an even bigger impact by tackling issues before they arise?
Focus Group 1: Tackling the Causes of Poverty in York
We are delighted to welcome guest speakers Katie Schmuecker, Deputy Director of Policy and Partnerships and Paul Kissack, Group Chief Executive of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation who will kick-start the discussions.
