Connected Voice is working with Gateshead Council to talk to the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector about their recent review of Advice, Information, Guidance and Advocacy. The Council have spent significant time consulting with the sector and developing this review, and now that the recommendations have been accepted by the Council they want to talk to interested organisations about it in more detail.

There are two sessions in which Gateshead Council would like to have a conversation about the findings and move towards a model that is the right fit for the Gateshead community; something that is much more about people and relationships and less about transactions and process. A model that is bespoke to the needs of individuals, continuous learning and course correcting which better contributes to social change.
