    Community networks and forums

    You can make a difference!

    Newark & Sherwood CVS help to facilitate a number of networks across the district. This provides an opportunity for groups to come together, share ideas and learn from each other.

    Newark & Sherwood Community Network

    The Newark & Sherwood Community Network facilitates and enables a constructive relationship between the Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector, public and private bodies.

    The Network provides an opportunity for organisations from across the VCSE sector, to develop a united voice and ensure that important issues are brought to the attention of the appropriate bodies/organisations, and vice versa. Always acknowledging that a diversity of views may exist.


    Is free and is open to VCSE, statutory & business organisations that operate within Newark and Sherwood District.
