The Economic Resilience & Employment Forum gives voluntary and community sector organisations in Falkirk the opportunity to discuss and debate issues around growing business and employment, business connections, employability and tourism.
As a thematic mirror forum, issues arising from the Economic Resilience & Employment Forum are taken forward by the forum representative to the Community Planning Partnership via the Economic Development theme meetings, supported by CVS Falkirk staff.

Online Discussion Boards
Alongside the 4 forum meetings a year, we now facilitate an Online Discussion Board to support the work of the forum. The purpose of this discussion board is to allow colleagues to share information, raise issues and ask questions between the quarterly meetings. These discussions will be used to help to influence the agendas of upcoming meetings, with outcomes of conversations being fed back to the discussion boards. You can access the discussion board for this forum by clicking on the following link: Economic Resilience and Employment Online Discussion Board.
The Online Discussion Boards are publicly accessible, but you will need to register, and be logged in to be able to contribute to the discussions.
The forum continues to support “virtual” membership through the Online Discussion Boards. We realise it is not always possible to attend a meeting in person. As a virtual member of the forum you will have the opportunity to access the agendas and minutes of meetings through this page, engage with other forum members and take part in the discussion boards, raise issues and influence the work of the forum.
We hope you enjoy using the online discussion boards. If you do have any queries, or have any issues accessing or using the discussion boards, please contact Laura Jamieson by phone: 01324 692003, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
