York CVS plays an important role in representing the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in the city. We manage several important forums and help public bodies work with voluntary and community groups.
We work in partnership with the statutory sector to tackle inequalities and improve the design and delivery of services. We aim to ensure that knowledge and evidence from the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector is heard and made use of when creating strategies and designing and commissioning services.
We do this by:
- Developing relationships with commissioners.
- Contributing to key Boards including the Health and Wellbeing Board and Partnership Boards.
- Ensuring that the voluntary sector is represented in key decision making.
