Sitting in with the Third Sector Advisory Board

This afternoon I sat in on a meeting with the Third Sector Advisory Board (TSAB) as part of my new role as Communications & Research Officer at Tower Hamlets CVS.The TSAB was first created when Tower Hamlets CVS’ (THCVS) predecessor closed down, to ensure there was a direct line of communication between the local Voluntary Sector and the Council. After the re-founding of a CVS in the borough the Board has survived as a jointly-held forum between the Council and the local Third Sector.

Let’s make sure our voices are heard

Over the last few months I’ve been getting out and about - meeting lots of organisations in the borough and attending a number of events where we’ve discussed some of the important issues affecting the sector at this busy time. The big health conversation on the 8th September was a really welcome opportunity for the health sector, voluntary sector and patients to all come together to discuss recent voluntary sector research and consider how the findings from the research will contribute to better health and wellbeing for the borough’s residents.
