Lobbying

An independent voice

Ian-Smith1Cornwall VSF speaks as the independent voice of our members on a variety of important issues.

We attempt to effect positive change for the voluntary sector by focusing our lobbying efforts on elected officials and public sector bodies such as the NHS and Cornwall Council.

A current focus is highlighting contradictions between government policies, for example austerity measures, and the reality for VCSE organisations on the ground.

We act independently and are not associated or affiliated with any other organisations, except the three sector umbrella bodies South West Forum, NAVCA and NCVO.

We fully comply with guidance from the Charity Commission around charities and campaigning activity. If you have an issue you would like us to lobby about, please contact admin@cornwallvsf.org.
