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.
A new VCG was selected in August 2012 by a sub group of the NICVA Executive Committee and the new membership spans the sector.
The Joint Government/Voluntary and Community Sector Forum, commonly known as the Joint Forum, was established in October 1998.
Social Development Minister, Nelson McCausland, has addressed the Joint Government Voluntary and Community Sector Forum at NICVA this morning.
