The VCSE Sector Leadership Group has been established to provide a mechanism for the VCSE to engage in wider system leadership conversations as well as further the sector’s collective agenda. Sector leadership is leadership that operates across local systems rather than within institutions. Much system leadership work focuses on trying to achieve the two key priorities of integration and prevention. 

The overarching purpose of the group is to ensure the VCSE sector in Norfolk is able to engage effectively in wider system leadership conversations within the county and, where appropriate, the region. The group also oversees progress on the key actions from the Sector-Led Plan.  

The group will: 

  • Bring together a broad range of views and expertise from across the VCSE sector
  • Create an appropriate interface for the VCSE in wider system leadership conversations
  • Provide links into VCSE networks within key areas
  • Be seen as legitimate to lead on this by the VCSE sector and other key stakeholders
  • Mandate VCSE representatives and provide a line of accountability and communication to the wider sector 

Current membership of the group is:

  • Judith Bell (elected)
  • Jonathan Clemo (appointed by Community Action Norfolk as one of the “Working Together” (VCSE Engage) partners)
  • Cindee Crehan (appointed by Momentum (Norfolk) as one of the “Working Together” (VCSE Engage) partners)
  • Claire Cullens (appointed by Norfolk Community Foundation)
  • Alan Hopley (appointed by Voluntary Norfolk as one of the “Working Together” (VCSE Engage) partners)
