VCS Representation on the Children’s Social Care Services Strategic Reform Programme –***Nominations Now Closed***
On behalf of the Department of Health, NICVA is currently seeking nominations for Voluntary Community Sector positions across the Children’s Social Care Services Strategic Reform Programme.
Catch up on some highlights of what NICVA's Policy and Public Affairs Team have been up to in the last quarter to support the work and key interests of the sector:
NICVA recently hosted a special briefing and Q&A session for voluntary and community sector representatives with the Northern Ireland Office on the new Windsor Framework designed to replace previous arrangements under the NI Protocol.
In the midst of the cost-of-living crisis our communities need our sector more than ever before. However, voluntary and community organisations are facing unprecedented challenges. This article outlines the support that NICVA provides.
NICVA is using the information from our surveys to influence government. We are focussed on the impact on people, but also on voluntary and community organisation's and their capacity to deliver support to those most in need.
Below is a summary of the most recent activities of NICVA's Policy and Public Affairs team from April-June 2022.
