0-25 VCS Forum - coming meetings and training sessions:

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis - we have moved to regular virtual meetings via Zoom until it is safe for us all to meet again face to face.

Tuesday 26th January - 10.30am - We will be joined by Amanda Davis and Richard Belcher from Dorset Council Children's Services who will be presenting the new Children and Young People's Plan and taking questions.  Marie Waterman will also be joining us to tell us about the role of The Volunteer Centre and their workstream.

Wednesday 17th February - 11am - This is your opportunity to come along and meet the newly elected VCS Champions who will be representing the 0-25 VCS Forum at the Dorset LAG Meetings.  This is your chance to ask questions and share information that you would like taken to the LAG meetings.  Feedback from the LAG meetings will be shared through the 0-25 VCS Forum at meetings and will be available here on our website.    At 11.30am we will be joined by Viv Allen, DorPip who will be talking to us about helping families flourish in the first 1001 days and early years.
