The East Sussex Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise Alliance: Our Journey So Far

The East Sussex Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise Alliance: Our Journey So Far document cover

Published in November 2023, In line with our annual conference, the East Sussex VCSE Alliance are pleased to share ‘Our Journey So Far’; a reflection on the work that has taken place since we formed in 2021.

The document provides an introduction to The Alliance, who we are, our purpose and vision. It highlights the principles of collaboration, accountability and generous leadership that all our members are committed to.

Our journey in making the Alliance a reality has involved changing our thinking and our behaviour.

We have lived by the mantra ‘be the change you want to see’ and by doing so have helped change and improve life in East Sussex.

We are working together and with our partners in ways that were inconceivable just a few short years ago.

We’re collaborating to tackle issues such as loneliness, the cost-of-living crisis and health inequalities and, we believe, are changing lives because of this. We describe this work here and introduce our priorities for 2024 onwards.

We’ve made some changes to better deliver on this work and to reflect the growth and diversification of our membership and have set these out.

Finally, this document demonstrates how we intend to continue to tackle inequality and injustice by developing trusting and strategic relationships.
