Networks and Forums


Our Forums are a space where our member groups can discuss, network and share views on current issues. It’s an opportunity to find solutions to shared issues together. We run five different Forums on the following themes:

  • Health Groups Forum
  • Children’s, Families and Young People’s Groups Forum
  • Older Person’s Groups Forum
  • Eco Forum
  • Volunteer Forum

MSVA's Participation in Local Networks and Forums

We make sure the voluntary sector is heard in all the right places.

We represent the views of Mid Sussex voluntary sector at a number of networks, forums and partnerships. We position the services and needs of voluntary groups at the forefront of local decision-making. If you would like us to raise a particular issue or topic on your behalf, please contact us.
