As the voice of the third sector in Cardiff, C3SC is frequently approached by bodies such as the Welsh Assembly Government, Cardiff Council and NHS to respond to consultations which require third sector opinion on proposed areas of their work.
We believe consultation with the sector should be all inclusive, recognising the broad spectrum of interests, such as youth groups, disabled groups, age groups, religious and faith groups. That's why we give you the opportunity to feed in to responses.
We respond to consultations by:
• Submitting an organisational response via relevant staff members
• Inviting members to contribute their views via email, post or telephone
• Inviting members to contribute their views via 'Viewpoints' discussion sessions
You will find the full list of open consultations on the Welsh Assembly Government website at www.wales.gov.uk/consultations
The WCVA produces a weekly Consultation Bulletin, which you can download from their website - click on the 'More information (Downloads)' box on the right hand side of their web page.

Other useful information
In Wales, the third sector has a unique opportunity to engage with, and put its views to, the Welsh Government. WCVA's ground-breaking third sector scheme sets out how Government and the sector will work together and communicate with one another. This document provides details for third sector groups that would like to know more about this relationship and the sector’s meetings with Welsh Government Ministers.
