York CVS represents and advocates for the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in York. Our Voluntary Sector Forums play a key role in transmitting ideas, views and critical challenge to and from the sector and public bodies in York.
Our forums are open events that focus on discussing topic-specific issues that impact people living in York. We bring the sector together to work in partnership to share best practice and sector developments, tackle inequalities, and to positively influence strategic decision making. The general format of the forums includes an introduction from an expert speaker followed by active discussions to explore how we can work together as a sector to tackle some of these issues.
The forum topics are predominantly identified by the York CVS team but we would welcome ideas from the VCSE network. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org to suggest a topic.
Following feedback, we have also introduced a Strategic Forum and a Volunteer Management Forum. These forums are held two or three times a year and focus on the bigger issues the VCSE is grappling with, for example, procurement and partnerships. In addition, York CVS are also bringing the sector together for focus groups to discuss specific issues and to gain feedback from the VCSE.
