VS6 Update for Members of VCA - August 2019

The recent meeting of the VS6 partners was attended by VCFSE sector representatives from across the Liverpool City Region, including Sefton CVS, Liverpool CVS, Halton & St Helens VCA, Community Action Wirral and Merseyside Youth Association.

The meeting included discussion of the Clore Leadership programme, which now has its first Liverpool City Region cohort of individuals. The programme, which is supported by VS6 and Capacity: The Public Services Lab, provides participants with leadership skills training and individual development plans.

Also at the meeting, individual members of the partnership provided updates on meetings & work where they represent VS6, including meetings with Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram; and work with the British Council around leadership and inclusive economy. Finally, Network for Europe shared information on current European funding available in the region, and possible future rounds to be aware of.

The next meeting of the partnership is due to take place  in September where guest speakers will be Paula Ellis, Corporate Engagement Manager at Liverpool City Region Combined Authority; Claire Dove OBE, Chief Executive at Blackburne House and VCSE Crown Representative; and Sam Murtagh from Halton Borough Council who is leading on a piece of work for Liverpool City Region Combined Authority on market reform in Children’s residential care and is keen to engage with the Sector through VS6.
