Welcome to the final GAVCA bulletin!
Thank you for your messages of support and thanks over the last few weeks. We have been overwhelmed by your kindness. We have very much enjoyed playing a small part in the development of such a vibrant and diverse voluntary sector in Gloucestershire.
We shall be leaving, on our website, details of resources and other support organisations which might be helpful to you. Look out for information about the ‘GAVCA Legacy Fund’ to help and support the voluntary sector in the future.
Thank you all
Catherine, Susan, Jane and Angela
Gloucestershire Local Access Forum
The Gloucestershire Local Access Forum is a statutory group established to advise the County Council and others about improving public access to the countryside and rights of way. The Local Access Forum is working to make the natural environment accessible and as enabling and inclusive as possible.
It has established the Disability Access Subgroup who are looking at ways of improving access for all those with limited mobility and other impairments and in particular want to hear what limits or prevents access to the countryside.
Please can you send any information to Richard Holmes, chair of the subgroup, by the end of May Richard Holmes 01285659628 email@example.com
