Croydon Council is developing a strategy to guide its work with voluntary and community sector organisations and groups in Croydon.
It has put a survey for organisations about the issues that are important to organisations on its website for completion by 11 January . Typical tokenism, as most organisations Committees are unlikely to be meeting over the Christmas/New Year period.
There is then an engagement event on 22 January at the Hilton to discuss how work together to address the issues raised.
Why is it not at the community meeting space at Bernard Wetherill House, or in the Braithwaite Hall, or at a community hall like East Croydon URC?
