The Joint Forum Voluntary and Community Group (VCG) is made up of 15 representatives from around the sector. The VCG meets with the government departments three times per year as the Joint Forum. The VCG also meets independently before each Joint Forum meeting. We’ll provide updates on the work of the group here.
The Voluntary and Community Sector panel got together last Tuesday 17 October ahead of the Joint Forum meeting between the public sector and voluntary and community taking place on Friday 27 October 2017.
A new VCG was selected in April 2017 by a sub group of the NICVA Executive Committee and the new membership spans the sector.
VCU is initiating a review of its arrangements for supporting the Voluntary and Community Sector through the Regional Infrastructure Support Programme (RISP) to ensure arrangements are fit for purpose for the next 5-7 years.
