York CVS Forums

York CVS represents and advocates for the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in York. Our forums play a key role, transmitting ideas, views and critical challenge to and from the sector and public bodies in York.

By supporting these forums, York CVS works in partnership with the statutory sector to tackle inequalities of all sorts and to improve the design and delivery of services. We work hard to ensure knowledge and evidence from the VCSE sector is available to positively inlfuence strategic decision making as well as the commissioning of services.

We do this by:

Developing relationships with commissioners

Contributing to strategic groups such as the Health and Wellbeing Board

Ensuring that the voluntary sector is represented in key decision making
