THE BEST
PART ABOUT POP+
IS ITS COMMUNITY

This is not an organisation run from the centre, but one driven by the huge assets that exist in the voluntary and community sector, and the time generously given by social activists in the city to create links and collaborate on issues. Our networks are the way in which this happens.

THE WORK
WE DO IS TO
HELP THE COMMUNITY

Our mission is to support cross-sector collaboration with Plymouth’s third sector, to develop thriving organisations and groups that can create social capital and positive social change.

SO WHAT
ACTUALLY IS
POP+?

Plymouth Voluntary Community Social Enterprise is registered with the Charity Commission as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (number: 1167515). Our vision is a vibrant, sustainable third sector in Plymouth valued for delivering effective and efficient cross-sector services and support that leads to positive social change for local people.

We had £200,000 for the year Sept 17  – Sept 18 to allocate.  After careful consideration , some of the funding will be used to support learning from others, the background research we need to inform our work and new ways of sharing the progress to be made, but we have £100,000  to invest in new ideas, new networks and active change…all focused on strengthening the community sector across the city. Over the next six months we can invest in the ‘quick wins’ that will test the application process and engage more and more of you in deciding how we move forward.
