Commissioning Support for the Voluntary and Community Sector 2018-2021 Consultation

The Voluntary Sector Support contract ends on March 31st 2018.  Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) are seeking views from Voluntary and Community Sector organisations, volunteers and individuals who access services both from the Council’s currently contracted organisation (Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire) and other non NCC funded support organisations that provide similar services to communities and organisations.

The current contractor in addition to providing externally facing services to organisations, communities, volunteers and individuals provides views from the Voluntary and Community Sector to the Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) and strategic boards (Health and Wellbeing, Sustainable Transformation Plan for example) so that these are included in statutory business planning.

 This consultation is required to ascertain the views from Voluntary and Community Sector organisations, volunteers and individuals to help shape the new contract for 2018 – 2021. Consideration needs to be given to tighter budgets but ensuring that the service is targeted to the most need as described by the outcomes of the consultation.

If you currently work for, volunteer or access services from Voluntary and Community Sector support organisations, then we would like to hear your views to help shape the development of the next Voluntary and Community Sector support contract.

You can have your say in a number of different ways:

This consultation closes on 1st September 2017.
