As part of our engagement strategy with our voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise (VCSE) partners, D2N2 will be holding the first Third Sector Engagement event of 2020 in Chesterfield on March 4.
The event, being held at the Proact Stadium in Chesterfield from 10:00 to 13:30 will feature presentations from Jane Howson, Chief Executive of Autism East Midlands and a D2N2 Board member, as well as Head of Strategy & Policy Will Morlidge and Head of People & Skills Rachel Quinn.
Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise
The VCSE sector in D2N2 is a significant partner in the achievement of our local economic ambitions. As an enabler of employment and learning outcomes, by supporting people to address barriers and as a direct employer and contributor to the region’s economy, the relationship with the Local Enterprise Partnership is an important one.
This event is the first of a new model for a bi-annual strategic dialogue between D2N2 and our local VCSE partners and will be an opportunity to discuss:
- the changing role and responsibilities of LEPs;
- economic policy and priorities;
- funding streams and investments;
- working together to embed inclusion outcomes across D2N2.
Local Industrial Strategy
At this first event, we will focus on the developing Local Industrial Strategy for D2N2, with an opportunity for attendees to comment and contribute. It will also be an opportunity to discuss the way in which inclusion is now being embedded across D2N2 and how linkage with the VCSE might further improve this work as well as how the VCSE might contribute towards wider D2N2 objectives.
