The Voluntary Community Sector Assembly (VCSA) and the VCS 0-25 Summit
The Shropshire Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) Assembly was established to represent Shropshire’s voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector. The VCS Assembly consists of a diverse range of groups and organisations bringing energy, ideas and resources together to provide a strong collective voice.
The VCS Assembly understands the importance of working in partnership to achieve the best possible results for both the voluntary sector and the people of Shropshire. It works closely with us and other public sector partners to represent the VCSE and influence decision making for the benefit of Shropshire as a whole.
Shropshire VCS Assembly is made up of individual member groups and organisations but also of forums. The forums bring VCSE organisations together around a common theme or sub-sector. One of these forums focuses on the needs of children and young people. The 0-25 VCS Summit (also known as the Children and Young People’s Summit) provides an important network for Shropshire not-for-profit organisations (including charities, voluntary and community organisations) delivering services to children, young people and their families.
The 0-25 VCS Summit provides an important network of groups and organisations working to deliver services for children, young people and families. The summit allows groups and organisations to share information and work together around common issues. Representatives from the 0-25 VCS Summit are involved in many strategic decision making forums, including Shropshire Children’s Trust and Shropshire’s Safeguarding Children Board
