Forums and networks
Our online forums and networks bring the voluntary sector together to discuss, share and learn about issues, opportunities and challenges facing Camden residents and the community groups supporting them. They are open to any new or existing voluntary and community groups in Camden. Each forum meets regularly online.
We coordinate some Forums and Networks directly and help to set up or participate in others. You can find out more about these networks below, as well as access past recordings of meetings, notes and helpful resources from the networks we host.
Camden Voluntary Action Forum
A forum and network to discuss, share and learn about issues, opportunities and challenges facing Camden residents and the community groups supporting them.
Camden Social Prescribing Learning Network
A network to bring together all the groups and organisations involved in Social Prescribing in Camden to learn and share ideas and challenges.
As a member you will be part of a dedicated network for contributing a range of views and being consulted in areas of specific knowledge and expertise.
health inequalities network
The Health Inequalities Network supports grassroots BAME, people with disabilities and other marginalised communities in Camden by connecting them with health providers and policy makers.
CAMDEN INFRASTRUCTURE WIDER GROUP
A regular meeting with a small group of key borough-wide and infrastructure organisations to pool our knowledge and expertise for the benefit of the VCS in Camden. This group includes Volunteer Centre Camden, Camden Community Centres Consortium (C4), Healthwatch Camden, Camden Giving, Camden Disability Action and Young Camden Foundation.
peer support groups
Our Peer Support groups provide a safe space for others from the same cultural backgrounds with similar experiences to come together, ask questions, learn and share experiences, and generally feel more confident in the community.
Upcoming forums and network events
VAC provides various forums and those have been helpful and supportive because you get to meet other people in the field – people we wouldn’t have got to meet otherwise. We’ve been able to support one another and the forums have also been a good place to influence and allow us to raise issues and give us a voice and articulate what our needs are.
You can read more about the different ways we represent the voice of the Voluntary and Community Sector in our Guide on How Policy and Representation works in Camden or get in touch with Donna Turnbull at firstname.lastname@example.org
