GCVS is setting up a Build Back Better network to ensure the third sector in the City is directly shaping economic and social recovery work emerging in response to the devastating impact of the COVID-19 virus.

Open to charities, community groups and social enterprises of all shapes and sizes, you can join the network here, checking the Build Back Better box. We are also setting up informal online discussions via our Glasgow’s Third Sector online network.

This network aims to play a critical role going forward, providing:

  • Updates on social and economic recovery work in the City and the chance to feed into this work.
  • A space for the third sector to suggest and develop ideas for how we can support the city to “Build Back Better”.
