We've Got It!

Recognising, Understanding and Enhancing Third Sector Resilience

Wednesday 6th July, 9am - 4pm, International Lawn Tennis Centre, Eastbourne



Abbie Wraige – SpeakUp Forum

In the final activity of the day, we will all come back together to:

  • Consolidate our understanding of third sector resilience in East Sussex, the challenges we currently face, and the assets and strengths that we embody;
  • Agree on priority steps to be taken to enhance the resilience of the voluntary and community sector in East Sussex.

Based on participants’ reflections and learning from the day, each of the nine breakaway workshops will suggest one step that can be taken by the voluntary and community sector to enhance our resilience. Participants in the plenary workshop will then prioritise these steps and – for the top priorities – begin deciding how these steps can be taken, who will make them happen, and when they should happen.

The SpeakUp Forum will ensure these priority steps are taken forwards, and that the work we have done at the Big Event does not stand alone but connects to broader processes in East Sussex.

Outcomes from the plenary workshop and updates on follow-up actions will be available here soon.
