At the quarterly meeting on 26th September 2013 Forum members discussed what is probably the biggest single issue affecting SE15 today, being the issues confronting our Young People , the prospect of Unemployment for the majority of them, and how the local Voluntary and Community Sector working together could create real Opportunities for them for the future.
The draft minutes of the meeting can be found here …. PVSF Forum Meeting minutes 26 09 2013 draft . Breakout groups at the event considered many of these issues in more detail, and came up with a wide range of points that will require further consideration.
The notes from these breakout groups have now been analysed, and are now available here to accompany the minutes …… PVSF Forum Meeting workshop notes 26 09 2013 draft
They will be used to inform the initial discussions of a Children, Young People and Families network that it was agreed should be established to take this work forward within the SE15 Consortium framework. They will also have feedback from workshops at the Consortium Launch in July, and from the prospective Youth Funding bid from March 2013 that was not proceeded with at that time.
More detail will follow when the network’s first meeting has been arranged.
