Networks and Forums

Voluntary Action Coventry facilitates a number of networks and forums which enable voluntary and community organisations to engage with key people from statutory agencies on solving problems to identify new opportunities for working together to deliver better services and raising awareness of existing services and resources:

Children & Young People – Voluntary Sector Network – with direct links to the Children’s Services Improvement Board and Safeguarding Children’s Board, this Network is particularly focused on joint working on issues such as children’s social care, early help, safeguarding and effective multi-agency working

Community Safety – Voluntary Sector Network – with direct links to the Police, Crime and Community Safety Board, this Network is particularly focused on more effective joint working with statutory sector agencies such as the Police, Council, probation services and the West Midlands Police & Crime Commissioner

Health & Social Care – Voluntary Sector Network – with direct links to the Health & Well-being Board, this new Network combines a number of previous VAC forums and will cover joint working across a broad range of health and social care policy areas / client groups such as Older People, Learning Disabilities, Physical Disabilities, and Mental Health

To join any of these Networks, please contact Rob Allison at r.allison@vacoventry.org.uk

VAC’s Volunteer Co-ordinators Forum is open to all organisations that involve volunteers. Please email info@vacoventry.org.uk or call 024 7622 0381 for more information or view the events calendar for the date of the next forum.
