For information on the Voluntary Sector Forum please sign up for our mailing list here or contact


The voluntary sector forum brings together voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations to enable them to have an independent, strong and influential voice in York.

All voluntary and community organisations, faith groups and social enterprises are encouraged to attend the forum to create a meeting that is representative, has more authority and increases our influence on behalf of the sector.

The forum will generally focus on these themes:

  • Voluntary sector funding
  • Equalities
  • Policy consultation
  • Issues arising from forum members
