Getting together

Community explorers

We strengthen partnerships, help you make connections, and influence change.

We connect voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) groups to each other, and we work with a variety of partner agencies to promote joint working ‘on the ground’ and at a decision-making level to ensure that the VCFSE sector has the opportunity to understand and respond to local, Greater Manchester and national priorities.

To get connected to other groups, please contact Victoria Holden on Email: victoria.holden@actiontogether.org.uk Tel: 0161 3392345.

Community Explorers

Action Together has listened to what our members are saying about opportunities to network locally and have organised a series of monthly Community Explorers gatherings. The purpose of these gatherings is to enable voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sector groups and organisations within local communities to network with each other to enable them to find out what each other are doing, what else is happening in your area and how Action Together can support you.
