In the lead up to Big Green Week (14th - 22nd June 2014) and Bristol Green Capital 2015, ‘Painting the Town Green’ is a celebration of how local voluntary and community organisations are helping to create a greener Bristol, and a call to action to help increase their future impact.
Places are filling rapidly for this important half day event.
We have secured Mayor, George Ferguson, Cllr Gus Hoyt and one of the City’s top four strategic Directors, Alison Comley, to attend this important event. They will outline what the council has done to address the concerns raised during last February's VCS and Commissioning event and what steps they will be taking to ensure that voluntary and community sector organisations are included in future commissioning processes.
The Finance Forum offers anyone with financial responsibilities the chance to receive updates on legislation, workshops on chosen topics and a safe environment to learn from each other’s practical skills and experience by addressing a current issue together at each meeting.
Need to know what format to present your financial information?
The topic for January’s Forum will be Management Accounts and Cashflow.
Further information and Agenda will be available shortly. The meeting will focus on the current plans for Bristol City Council's Adult Social Care Commissioning. We will hear from the Strategic Director for People , Bristol City Council, John Readman and the Service Director for Strategic Commissioning Netta Meadows.
A Youth Strategy for Bristol : Join the discussion with the Children and Young People’s Network
Presenter: Gary Davies, Service Manager, Bristol City Council
This meeting will be an opportunity for you to give your views on a Bristol Youth Strategy. What do you believe is important to include in a Youth Strategy? What age groups should it cover? What are the aims and objectives? How will it relate to Bristol Youth Links?
The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) has highlighted the rise in numbers of children and young people in Bristol. More data-sets within the JSNA Atlas (database) are being released in April. Nick Smith (JSNA Manager) will present some of the key messages regarding population, child health, social care and education and Mark Newman from the Council’s on-line mapping team will demonstrate the Atlas tool online for people to utilise themselves. There will also be an opportunity to discuss the impact on services.
