Open Public Services - Consultation event
The future of public services and voluntary organisations
Open Public Services - Consultation event: Market development and supporting civil society
28th Sept, 10-12.30, Birmingham
The government is proposing major reforms to public services in the Open Public Services White Paper. NAVCA will be responding to the paper and we would urge all interested members to do likewise. As part of the consultation process, and in partnership with the Cabinet Office, we are holding a focused consultation for NAVCA members on the theme of market development on Wednesday morning, 28th September in Birmingham at BVSC. Places are free but limited so please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place or call 0114 278 6636.
We will look at what role there should be for those who support local voluntary organisatons that deliver and bid for these public services. The consultation will lead to a special report to be presented to government, emphasising the vital role that support and development organisations carry out to assist local commissioning.
