North West Transforming Local Infrastructure Networking Event

26 June 2012

As a result of the TLI programme 16 partnerships have been awarded a combined total of £6million. Between April 2012 and September 2012 this funding will be invested in the transformation of infrastructure support services throughout the North West region.

VSNW organises this event as we are keen to ensure that recipients of the funding are able to maximise its impact and benefit for the individual partnerships, the local third sector and the region as a whole. Representatives of the North West partnerships who were unsuccessful with their TLI applications were also invited to attend the event.

The aim of the event was to enable attendees to explore closer partnership working and identify opportunities for sharing expertise, knowledge and best practice through peer-learning arrangements and networking. It was also hoped that this event would help to identify existing expertise and resources that are relevant to the specific needs of partnerships and therefore lead to inter-partnership trading and help retain funding and expertise within the region.

26 key representatives from the North West TLI partnerships attended the event. Representatives from the Office for Civil Society (OCS), the Big Lottery Fund (BIG) and the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action (NAVCA) were also in attendance.

An event report was produced and includes a series of recommendations for the 'next steps'. To download the report (PDF Format): Click Here

VSNW is currently testing levels of support for the recommendations with the individual partnerships through a series of on-site meetings.

A copy of Sheila Batterby's (OCS) presentation is also available to download (PDF Format): Click Here
