Having a strong collective voice helps to raise the profile of our sector. We aim to ensure that the needs of the sector are represented at a policy and decision making level across North Yorkshire.
We ensure that the sector has representatives in the right place at the right meetings so that your views are heard. We also make sure that you are kept informed about discussions which impact on the sector.
The Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) Sector has representatives on many of the committees and Boards in North Yorkshire which have the potential to impact on your work, income and funding. Click here for a list of all the meetings that we and our partners attend to ensure that the voluntary sector is represented. We’ve summarised these into the following areas:
Community First Yorkshire also represents the sector on the North Yorkshire and York Chief Executives Group.
The VCS representative for the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board (NYSCB) and North Yorkshire NYSCB Learning and Improvement Subgroup, has been appointed. Abigail Homer, Chief Executive Officer at The Clock in Thirsk, has come forward and will now provide the voice of the sector feeding into both these groups. If you have any questions or observations please contact Caroline O‘Neill, Policy and Partnerships Officer, email@example.com or Abigail, firstname.lastname@example.org
VCSE organisations play an important part in delivering and supporting local services. Where important decisions are made about these services, the sector needs to ensure that its voice is heard.
We ensure that the needs and thoughts of the VCSE sector are represented and that information about consultations which could have an impact on the sector and the people it serves are made available to voluntary organisations.
