Trafford VCSE Organisations Invited to attend the next Thrive Trafford VCSE Strategic Forum on Trafford VCSE Digitalisation on 4th June 2019

VCSE Organisations invited to Thrive Trafford's next VCSE (Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise) Strategic Forum on Trafford VCSE Digitalisation

Digital technology is ever advancing and the VCSE sector in Trafford needs to be aware of latest developments, and how these can be used to benefit their organisations, service users and in supporting Trafford’s local communities.

Developments include opportunities for digital upskilling of residents; how digital information can be used to support service delivery; undertaking digital communications and using this to collect data and receive feedback; how to use digital technology to improve workforce development practices; and using assistive technologies to support vulnerable people and improve accessibility.

There are also new and exciting developments underway in Trafford including digital skills support and space that will be made available for communities and the VCSE sector at the new UA92, Greater Manchester level development programmes and funding including GMCA Digital Inclusion Fund, new opportunities for volunteers, and opportunities to develop new social enterprise activity.

At the same time, Trafford Council is developing a new Digital Strategy for Trafford and the Leader of Trafford Council, Councillor Andrew Weston is Digital Lead for Greater Manchester.

This is an important event for the VCSE sector in Trafford to be at the cutting edge of digital transformation. Come along and hear from our inspirational speakers which will include the Leader of Trafford Council and representatives from Fujitsu and Microsoft.

This is a great opportunity for VCSE sector organisations to learn, help to map the digital needs and skills gaps that exist within Trafford’s VCSE sector, and to start planning how to take these forward.

We hope that you will be able to make it to this important event for the VCSE Sector in Trafford and have your voice heard and provide your input on:
