VCS Assembly Strategy and Action Plan
A draft VCS Assembly Strategy and Action Plan has been produced for 2019/20 setting out Assembly plans for the coming year. This includes addressing issues arising from the State of the Sector report produced at the end of last year.
Free safeguarding training
We've arranged free safeguarding training for staff and volunteers working in the voluntary and community sector with children and vulnerable adults so that organisations can ensure all their staff have received the training required:
Monday 1st July 9.30a.m. – 12.30pm
Stannington Village Hall, Main Street, Stannington, Morpeth NE61 6EL
‘Making Every Contact Count’
‘Making Every Contact Count’ (MECC) enables opportunistic delivery of consistent and concise healthy lifestyle information to support making positive lifestyle changes.
The Assembly now has representation on the MECC Steering Group, which is led by Northumbria Healthcare and Public Health. We want to ensure that interested voluntary and community groups are aware of this and have an opportunity to participate in MECC training.
