Social inclusion through positive action

Creating a more equal society requires taking proactive, targeted action - not just 'getting out of the way and letting the market decide.' Such positive action underpins all Voscur's work to support and develop the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. We are also involved in a number of other initiatives addressing specific barriers to opportunity, and provide training and consultancy for organisations that want to improve their own inclusion and diversity practice.

Peer Networks

There are a number of both local and national peer networks which provide a valuable space, both on and offline, for people to meet, exchange ideas and share learning. Although Voscur provides support in a number of areas for local voluntary, community and social enterprise groups, we also work with other specialist peer networks to support particular types of learning and collaboration.
