Bradford District Assembly

Bradford District Assembly

We have a number of different forums available to people and organisations involved in voluntary and community groups within the Bradford district.

Forum members make up the Bradford District Assembly with current membership standing at around 1,000 organisations and individuals.

The forums enable more coordinated responses as well as providing a vital means of accountability for our work.

The Bradford District Assembly is independently managed by the Assembly Steering Group, which meets regularly and has representatives from each of the forums as well as other voluntary and community sector partners.

Its role is to channel views, issues and information from the forums through to decision-making bodies.

Sign up to Assembly Forums via our online forms (found on the relevant forum page) or contact for further information.

The dates of all upcoming forum meetings can be found on our homepage.

The Assembly Annual Report which details the activities and achievements over the year can be found below.
