Voluntary, community and social enterprise sector 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. They welcome input and guidance from local groups both before and after these meetings, and share the decisions and actions taken at these meetings in return.
