FASNET is a network of voluntary & community sector (VCS) groups working with children, young people and families in Trafford. We aim to raise the profile and influence of voluntary sector groups with statutory sector partners, provide support and training for our members and celebrate the positive contribution of the voluntary and community sector to the lives of children, young people and their families in Trafford.
We hold regular meetings where statutory sector and voluntary sector organisations can update each other on their activities and discuss policy issues affecting children, young people, and families. FASNET publishes a bi-monthly newsletter and a regular email bulletin, which contain updates on policy, funding and other relevant matters.
We organise training courses for our members and work with Trafford Children & Young People's Service (CYPS) and Trafford Safeguarding Children Board to provide access for VCS groups to their training programmes.
Representing the Sector
FASNET identifies opportunities for voluntary sector groups to be represented at a strategic level both locally and regionally, raising the profile of the sector with our statutory sector partners and providing a chance to feedback upon and influence local policy decisions.
