Next year, Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council will be jointly commissioning our Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) Capacity Building Partnership(s)*.
VCS capacity building partnerships provide what’s sometimes referred to as ‘infrastructure support’ such as essential guidance, training, resources and support to hundreds of local community organisations such as charities, community groups and parish councils, as well as providing a voice and a network that fosters good working relationships and representation.
This is especially important in light of our ambitious new approach with public sector partners called ‘Think Communities’. Think Communities is a shared way of working alongside communities to develop an agreement on the priorities for that place, taking account of local strengths and needs and working more creatively alongside our colleagues in the VCS to bring about system-wide change.
We would really value your time to help shape the service we commission by completing this survey by Friday 13 December 2019. This survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Please click "next" below to begin the survey.
