Invitation: Liverpool City Region's VCFSE Sector Metro Mayoral Hustings 2021

Ahead of the Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor election on the 6th May 2021, the VS6 Partnership are delighted to be hosting a VCFSE Mayoral Hustings event with the main party candidates on Tuesday April 20th 2-4pm

In partnership with the sector, we have produced a VCFSE sector manifesto that will be circulated a week prior to this event. The manifesto is based on a series of thematic assembly events held during 2020 and following consultation events that took place earlier this month on a draft manifesto.  

The Hustings is a chance for VCFSE organisations across the Liverpool City Region to ask questions to the candidates, and discuss what is important, not only to your organisation, but also the sector as a whole. This election is of particular importance as the need for a strong leader is of paramount importance as we face a difficult and uncertain future following the pandemic. The sector has shown great strength and resilience throughout the last year. However, going forward we need political support if we are to continue to protect the vulnerable and help our communities.  

The Hustings will follow a question-and-answer style structure, with candidates also given the chance to address the sector during their opening statement. In order to organise a broad spectrum of question topics, we ask attendees to please submit potential questions and whether they would be happy to ask them during the event when registering. A selection of questions on the most common question themes will be selected and put to the candidates. We will contact you directly pre-event if your question has been chosen.  

We are pleased to announce that Sally Yeoman, Chief Executive of Halton and St Helens VCA, Vice-Chair of VS6 (and also a NAVCA award-winning Chief Exec of the year 2020) will be chairing the event.  

We will be joined by the following party candidates: 

  • Steve Rotheram (Labour) 
  • David Newman (Liberal Democrats) 
  • Gary Cargill (Green) 
  • Jade Marsden (Conservative) - TBC 

To confirm your place, please register to attend via the following link:

You will be sent zoom joining details in the week prior to the event.
