Fife's Voluntary Sector working closely with Police Scotland
Please note that the date has changed to Monday 02 June 2016.
Fife Voluntary Action would like to bring to your attention an exciting opportunity to help forge stronger links between Fife's voluntary sector and Police Scotland here in Fife.
Police colleagues are keen to work closely with us to ensure the best support possible for our communities.
Engagement meetings will take place every couple of months with a group of representatives to look at new developments, make improvements to communications and various aspects of local policing.
What is this?
An opportunity to join a group of voluntary sector representatives who will meet with local Police Scotland colleagues on a regular basis. It will further improve understanding and support between voluntary organisations and the Police, but also the Police and our communities.
Who is it for?
Third sector representatives - people involved in community groups, voluntary organisations or charities - either as staff or volunteers. You need to be attending with the 'permission' of the group/organisation and formally represent them and their interests at the meetings. Knowledge of crime, victims, policing etc. are not required - it's more about community engagement and ongoing dialogue. Representatives are being sought from any and all organisations - a mix of size of organisation, geographic patch, thematic areas of work and so on would be great.
Who is organising it?
DS Stuart Johnston of Police Scotland. Any enquires can be directed to Shirley Buttercase (01383 318640 or [email protected]). Fife Voluntary Action will also attend and support the group.
How do I join the group?
Contact Shirley Buttercase (details above). Simply tell her your name, which organisation you will be representing and a little bit about what your group/organisation does.
When is the first meeting of this new group?
It'll take place early evening of Monday 02 June 2016. Full details will be supplied when you contact Shirley to express interest in joining the group.
We hope that you will give this your consideration and hope to see a number of voluntary sector colleagues at the meeting on 02 June.
