INVOLVE is a network of the community and voluntary sector and is the Community Engagement Network for Merton. It aims to make sure that the needs and preferences of service users, carers and the wider community are identified and kept central to the planning and delivery of future services in Merton.
Launch event for Merton Council funding programme
Join us at the next INVOLVE meeting at Vestry Hall on 17th July where Merton Council and partners will be launching the consultation on priorities for the Strategic Partner grants programme. The scope of the programme has expanded and the Council will be looking to fund voluntary sector organisations delivering services in the following areas: information and advice provision, infrastructure support for the voluntary sector, wellbeing services, carers support services, and Healthwatch. Following a workshop attended by over 50 organisations in November 2017, the Council set up a Collaborative Working Group to oversee the process for developing a new outcomes framework.
Come along on 17th July to hear first-hand the thinking behind the new programme and to offer your views on the priorites and commissioning intentions. The event will include short presentations, the opportunity to ask questions, and workshops aimed at providing feedback on the draft funding prospectus.
The meeting will take place from 10.00-12.30 on the 17th July in Vestry Hall and we hope to see many of you there!
