The VCS Alliance runs Forums where groups can meet, currently on Zoom, to discuss topics of interest, share best practice and make a meaningful contribution to engagement between the VCS and statutory services. Current Forums are:

  • Global Majority Communities. Chaired by Elaine Pearson-Scott from Gloucestershire Nightstop. The Forum is open to anyone interested in working within global majority communities.
  • Mental Health. Open to anyone in VCS organisations in Gloucestershire working in mental health.
  • Mental Health and Physical Activity Group. Jointly run by the VCS Alliance and Nicky Haverson from Active Gloucestershire. The group is a forum for those who provide sport and physical activity opportunities in the county. It is a sub-committee of the Gloucestershire Mental Health and Wellbeing Partnership Board.
