Defra consulting on new voluntary sector strategy - Wednesday 21 November 2007

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has launched a consultation on how it can work more effectively with voluntary sector organisations to inform the department's third sector strategy document, which will be published next April

The Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs wants to engage with the sector more in its work, protecting the environment, supporting rural communities and addressing climate change.

The consultation process will constitute meetings of groups of voluntary sector stakeholders that know about certain issues, who will be invited to suggest practical ways that the Department and the sector can work together. Workshops will then be run around each of the themes, to engage a wider audience.

The consultation closes on 15 April 2008.
