Volunteers' Week 1-7 June 2019
30 May, 2019

 

To mark Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June 2019), let’s examine the huge range of volunteers in Bristol. People of all ages give their time and energy to charities, community groups and social enterprises in the city and, without their contributions, Bristol would be a less supportive and inclusive place.

The West Women of the Year Awards 2019 acknowledged the contribution of female leaders and pioneers in the VCSE sector at last week’s ceremony.

Voscur’s CEO and a number of female leaders from member groups made the shortlist of 100 most inspiring women in the West and some were among the award winners on the night.

Nominees came from many different fields, including charity, business, education and sport, and we are pleased that the contribution of the VCSE sector was recognised within several categories.

The nominations deadline for the next 'Voscurs', Bristol's social impact awards, has now been extended: you have until Thursday 20 December 2018 to nominate hard-working VCSE organisations. Whilst three of the six awards categories are decided by a panel of judges, the three remaining awards are decided by public vote. All six awards give important recognition from the rest of the local VCSE sector, and need your nominations to truly represent Bristol's voluntary, community and social enterprise groups. 

Categories for the Voscurs are:

Bristol Black History Month speakers: Esi Edugyan, David Olusoga, Chiddera Eggerue and Kamal Ahmed.

In the lead-up to the General Election, LGBT charity Stonewall has released a Manifesto around the rights and equality of LGBT people. Its tagline: “acceptance without exception”.

The Manifesto sets out pertinent questions to ask local candidates around LGBT issues, and emphasises the need to end continuing discrimination against LGBT people, both in the UK and abroad.

 This is your chance to ask representatives of each political party what they would do for Bristol’s equalities communities. 

Date/Time: 
Wednesday, 31 May, 2017 -
11:00 to 13:00

 

At the end of 2016, Voscur pulled together the data from five voluntary sector surveys.

These were carried out in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, and Bath & North East Somerset in 2016.
