Cost of Living Manifesto - for funders, commissioners & sector

15 May, 2023

At the end of March Voscur hosted the Cost of Living and Inequalities Conference, bringing together leading voices from across the city to share insight, understand challenges and plot pathways forwards through the current economic climate.

As a result of this work, a manifesto has been produced - this has been created by voices within the VCSE sector and is designed for those with an active interest in the VCSE sector (funders and commissioners) as well as the communities that the sector serves. 

You can view the manifesto in full by clicking here.

The manifesto will be taken to funders and networks throughout Bristol and surrounding areas. By committing to these new ways of working, funders and commissioners have the chance to significantly reduce poverty and inquality by enabling VCSE sector organisations to carry out this work effectively.

If you have any thoughts or want to contribute further to this work, please contact Voscur's Policy, Research and Communications Manager Ian, at
