Voice and Influence – A new model for communities of interest consultation...
Bristol City Council will be allocating £392,000 through the Bristol Impact Fund to empower communities to reduce disadvantage and inequality, using influence and participation as a way to achieve this.
Together with the Mayor’s vision for the city, and the Bristol Impact Fund objective to improve inequality and disadvantage, we are asking you as Bristol citizens what factors you think the new service needs to address to ensure communities can have a voice that is heard, thereby creating a more equitable city.
We are proposing that in the future a consortium of organisations work together to develop a voice and influence participation model. This could better address the themes common to a range of equalities groups. We also want the new service to work with people who experience poverty and disadvantage.
