Interagency Working in the Community and Voluntary Sector
Raise awareness of the critical role of the community and voluntary sector in supporting marginalised communities, the importance of interagency working and the increasing challenges we face.
Through our strength as an alliance and our collective expertise, CESCA has successfully influenced the equality agenda in Cork city. In a changing city, CESCA’s unique representation of diverse voices across multiple fora contributes to improving social cohesion and bringing a holistic and inclusive approach to achieving equality within the City. Our collective contribution to the Cork City Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) has also been a vital way to advocate for those citizens without a direct voice in that process. We therefore serve as a model of best practice of good inter-organisational collaborations are and what they can achieve.
