A cost of living emergency has been declared in Birmingham.

As with the Covid-19 pandemic, the Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise (VCFSE) sector are at the frontline in supporting people through the crisis. Everyone is affected to some degree, however it is those that the sector works with, particularly some of the most disadvantaged people who are already struggling to make ends meet, who will be hit the hardest.

Whilst facing increased service demand, sector organisations are also facing rising costs and an associated impact on their employees, volunteers, funding and service provision.

What more can VCFSE organisations do to tackle the growing emergency?

BVSC is bringing the sector together to collaborate on the crisis through a Cost of Living event.

Participants will be enabled to share experience, plans and ideas to support their communities. The whole day event, funded by the Barrow Cadbury Trust, will take place on 1 November, 9.30am (Registration and refreshments for a 10am start) – 4pm at the Priory Rooms
