Below you will find a paper about establishing a voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector Sector Leadership Group. This is one the initiatives that is being developed in response to some of the priorities identified by VCSE organisations through the Sector Led Plan engagement process.

Please take the time to read the attached paper. Some of you will have been heavily involved in discussions in this area for others it will be entirely new. The paper is designed to try and explain the context, rationale and process for establishing the group.

One of the pieces of feedback we have had is about making more information available about how groups fit together, who represents the sector and how people can get involved. The short answer is that this is not always clear or straightforward but we are trying to make this more transparent, coherent and effective.

Importantly, there are a number of directly elected positions as part of the Sector Leadership group. This is designed to help provide input from a broader range of voices and improve accountability to the wider VCSE sector. The deadline for nominations is 3rd July at 1200 and a nomination form is attached. More details about the role can be found within the paper.

The election is at 1600 on 7th July, as part of the summit session of the Stronger Together conference. The summit session is free for any VCSE organisation to attend regardless of whether attending the rest of the conference.

May I take this opportunity to warmly invite you to attend the wider conference. It is free for members and only £20 for non-member organisations. It will be a great opportunity to hear and contribute to discussions about the future of the VCSE sector and Norfolk as well as take part in practical workshops and of course network with others in the sector. I’ve attached a conference flyer.

If you have any questions about anything above please do get in contact.
