VCSE Strategy and Policy Forum
The purpose of the meeting is to provide a forum for senior leadership representatives of the VCSE sector in Staffordshire and Stoke-On-Trent to discuss, debate, collaborate, coordinate and where appropriate to represent the sector, in matters of high level, cross-cutting, strategic and public policy. Specifically to:
- Develop policies and strategies that engage VCSE organisations in working with the LEP and public sector bodies to develop solutions to local social, economic and environmental problems; and
- Provide a mechanism for the LEP and public sector bodies to engage with and consult the VCSE sector in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire both generally and, more specifically, in developing service specifications as part of commissioning arrangements that support the achievement of increased social value from public expenditure.
