NCVO Members' Assembly, Colchester

Engaging with our 15,000 members face-to-face is core to our work as a membership organisation. We hold 20 members' assemblies throughout the year, aiming to reach all nine English regions.

We hope that by attending, our members will have the opportunity to:

  • hear the latest on public policy and other current issues facing the sector, and how NCVO is working on these
  • learn about the practical benefits and resources of your NCVO membership
  • contribute your ideas to NCVO work
  • meet other NCVO members and network over a free lunch

We are particularly keen to hear a wide diversity of views.

Over the last six years, public, voluntary and commercial partners in Colchester have been working through the One Colchester Strategic Group and latterly through the North East Essex Health and Wellbeing Alliance.They have been working to maximise opportunities to develop co-produced solutions and responses to public health and well-being trends. This has included collaborating on developing new programmes of work, such as ‘Building a Dementia Friendly Community' and 'Tackling Inactivity', building closer networks and embracing an asset based community development approach.

Community 360 would like to use the event as an opportunity to engage with local NCVO members to explore how they can further develop existing and future programmes of work, ensure they are fit for purpose and that they understand the assets and challenges facing your local community.
