SpeakUp Countywide Forum has now come to an end and this site will no longer be updated. For information about how the voluntary and community sector will be working statutory partners in the future go to the Partnership Plus page of East Sussex Strategic Partnership.
For the last 11 years the SpeakUp Forum has brought together voluntary and community organisations for dialogue, information sharing and joint action about strategic planning and services in the county.
We have worked directly and collaboratively with the public sector to share perspectives, build knowledge and jointly address shared priorities. None of this would have been possible without the hard work of the members of SpeakUp who on a voluntary basis contributed their time to attending partnerships and contributing the views of the voluntary and community sector.
