Durham Voice Website
In 2011 The Cornforth Partnership was commissioned by Durham County Council to deliver Durham Voice. Since that time much has been achieved to strengthen partnership working, knowledge and information sharing between the public sector and the voluntary and community sector.
After a number of years providing information and representation for VCS and 3rd Sector organisations the commission from DCC has come to an end. This is disappointing, as it provided a valuable service to many organisations, especially those smaller organisations without paid staff or resources.
It has been a pleasure to provide this service and appreciate all the messages of thanks and support we have received.
