Key Findings:

Our Winter 2023 issue of Connected Voice Magazine is all about The Power of Partnership. We hear from Chief Executive Lisa Goodwin about just how important partnerships are to the VCSE - especially at this moment in time - and we also hear from a number of organisations working in partnerships of various kinds across the North East.

For our Newcastle-based Spotlight, we talk to Ways to Wellness about how their innovative social prescribing project has been supporting people since its inception in 2015, and for our Gateshead-based Spotlight, we speak to The Salvation Army Community Church on Sunderland Road about the vital role they and their projects play in the community.

In a guest piece, we hear from Newcastle Foodbank about the crucial work they’re doing to support those most in need across the city, and how working in partnerships is integral to the success of this.

There are also insights from the Connected Voice team about the role of partnerships in our own projects, including a fresh look at our Sector Connector programme.
