After asking members and listening to their suggestions CAVS have rebranded their Future Needs Forums as the Castle Point Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) Forum.  Representatives from local groups and charities are welcome to come along to hear from the guest speakers, network with other attendees and share ideas for potential partnership working in an informal environment. We'll have tea, coffee and cakes too so do come and join us!
