Be a vital voice for our sector - be a Voscur Advocate!
Voscur is currently looking for enthusiastic, talented individuals to become Voscur Advocates.
Voscur Advocates play a key role in the city, ensuring that the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector is involved in strategic and operational decision making on a broad range of issues. They do this by getting involved in key strategic partnerships, boards and forums, working with representatives across a range of sectors whilst advocating on sector issues and contributing from a sector perspective. We are passionate about promoting the diversity of the sector, and to make sure that it is represented at a strategic level, we have negotiated and secured additional places on boards and groups so that we can build on multi-agency, cross sector partnership working in the city.
Voscur Advocate roles are voluntary – they are elected by the VCSE sector, based on the specific expertise and experience that they would bring to the role. So if you are looking to develop your professional skills, gain some valuable experience of working strategically in the city and give added support to the sector then we want to hear from you!
Dan Lyus, Voscur Advocate on the Better Care Bristol Transformation Board, says: " I became an advocate due to a desire to join stuff up, make it work better and show people in the statutory service that hold many of the key levers for change just what great resources they have on their doorstep."
We currently have vacancies for Voscur Advocates on the following strategic boards and groups:
- Bristol Safeguarding Children Board
- Bristol Safeguarding Adults Board
- Learning City Partnership Board
- Children and Families Partnership Board
- Joint Health Outcomes Challenge Group
- Participation Challenge Group
- Think Family Challenge Group
