Dear CVSA member
CVSA representation on the new Stronger Communities Partnership
You’ll know that the Council is setting up a new Stronger Communities Partnership to oversee the development of Croydon’s communities agenda. Its broad remit is to establish active and engaged communities in Croydon, with providing an environment for a thriving voluntary, community and faith sector as a priority. Croydon’s voluntary and community sector has been allocated six places, through the Croydon Voluntary Sector Alliance (CVSA), with another three places assigned to the faith sector.
If you are interested in acting as a CVSA representative on the new partnership (initially in an interim capacity) please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than FRIDAY 26 SEPTEMBER. The Council is planning a date for the first Partnership meeting in early October – hence the urgency.
After 26.9 I’ll aim to confirm allocation of the six places asap, setting out to achieve a cross-section of voluntary/community groups in the borough by using the following three categories:
· Large Groups – annual income above £500,000
· Small and Medium Groups – annual income between £10,000 and £500,000
· Grassroots Groups – annual income below £10,000
Do please contact me for a discussion if helpful – you can reach me on either 02082531260 or 07709233112
Best wishes – Steve
