Connecting and Strengthening the VCSE Sector

Respresentation

A key function of the VCSE Alliance is to facilitate representation at range of boards and committees, at system, place and neighbourhood levels.

Being part of these meetings is a key mechanism for influencing decisions about services and support for local people and their communities. Representatives from the VCSE take information and intelligence collected from their geographical or service areas.

VCSE Alliance representatives require skills and experience in the relevant area of the subject meeting they are appointed to, as well as a personal commitment to contribute as part of a collaborative approach to the future needs of Worcestershire. The Alliance has a Representation sub-group that oversees the management of this process.
