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.

Below you will find full Terms of Reference and Membership details for the group which is made up of umbrella/membership bodies and elected representatives from the local sector.
