Networking Forums

Third sector organisations are key in helping tackle some of the deep-rooted issues our communities face. Working together, we can build stronger links, encourage collaborations and unlock the full potential of the sector and make an even greater impact on the lives of those who need us most. 

One of the ways we can support this is through our calendar of monthly networking forums, providing a space for discussion, collaboration and joint training opportunities. Membership is open to any locally-based third sector organisation and to regional and national organisations funded to or proactively providing services in West Dunbartonshire.

Start Well Forum

Bringing together children, families and youth focussed organisations

Live Well Forum

Bringing together organisations supporting adults, addressing health, wellbeing and inequalities issues 

Age Well Forum

InVOLve Forum

Following a consultation with forum members, forums will continue online with one in-person meeting arranged at a suitable venue. If you have barriers restricting your access to online attendance, please contact us to see how we can help.

Meeting arrangements for 2023/24 can be found below and action logs detailing forum activity are in our Documents and Resources section.

“Being a member of the Involve Forum allows me to learn from others. I can get ideas, information, and network, all in the same place.”

Other Forums and Groupings

We are also keen to support forums and groupings around other themes where we can. This could be by offering meeting space, online space or secretariat services.
