Voluntary, community and faith organisations attended a recent Network event on 24 January to discuss partnership opportunities with Reigate & Banstead Borough Council.
Reigate & Banstead Borough Council shares the same aims as many VCFS organisations. It acts as a key partner in a range of ways: providing core funding and resources; referring clients; building connections across public sector organisations and providing information and analysis. The event looked at the future of partnership working between the voluntary sector and the Borough Council and identified areas where there is potential for greater co-operation.
Councillor Rod Ashford, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Wellbeing and Justine Chatfield, Head of Community Partnerships at RBBC outlined how the Council is reviewing its approach to supporting the Voluntary Sector.
