A Vision for Crewe - Crewe Community Plan 

CVS is carrying out a consultation with the Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector and key stakeholders to support Crewe Town Council in the refresh of A Vision for Crewe - Crewe's Community Plan

The Town Council feels that the overarching report and topic areas are still relevant but that the action plans within each theme need to be reviewed and updated.

They want to understand what services are currently being delivered in their community and what the key gaps are. The refreshed action plans will support the Town Council to target its resources and be proactive in tackling the current issues.

As an organisation providing services or with an interest in Crewe we would really like to hear from you. 

There are three ways to get involved.
