Participation

We help voluntary sector organisations in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly get their voice heard by co-ordinating voluntary sector representation on key boards and committees.

Here VCSE representatives sit alongside public sector staff, business leaders and elected officials to shape policy.

Boards include the Cornwall Executive Group, Children’s Trust, Safer Stronger Cornwall and Environment Kernow.

Becoming a representative

We are often asked to put forward new representatives to sit on boards and partnerships. If you are interested in becoming a representative, you should be able to command the confidence of colleagues in the field you are representing. You must also commit time to attending meetings and regularly updating VSF members. Representatives are approved by our board of trustees.

Representative positions will be advertised to members as opportunities arise.
