Networks that Matter
C3SC’s third sector officers facilitate several networks of organisations, community groups and other partners, and each network has its own theme. When you become a member of a network, you can take advantage of:
Access to relevant information
The Network’s third sector officer will keep you up to date with news from your area of interest. So, for example, if you want to engage in community safety initiatives, you could join the Cardiff Community Safety Network; if you want to be kept informed about the University Health Board's work, we'd encourage you to join the Health and Social Care Network. Whatever your interest, these networks are here to equip you and keep you informed about your area of interest.
Do you want to find out how your work fits into the bigger picture and who else is delivering similar services to you? C3SC organises meetings for you can meet and share ideas with other members of your network. C3SC’s networks put you in touch with the people you need to talk to.
Influence and a voice
C3SC gathers the opinions and experiences of the third sector via many different means: from our network events to providing third sector representation to statutory meetings. This allows C3SC to ensure that the third sector’s voice is represented at strategic and planning meetings. The networks allow you, as part of the third sector, to have your say on important issues that affect you and your area of interest.
So, take a look at our list of networks - hover on the 'Networks' tab - and see which ones fit your work best (you can join as many networks as you like and signing up is easy).
