More then just workforce

47.4 % of VCS

30% of all those working in the VCs are with CYP organisations

The sector will remain fragile

Workforce is not a silo on its own in the sector

Commissioning, marketing and management all have training needs

Embedding the VCS in Strategies

Partial

Dependent on local leadership and relative strength

Needs higher (Trust) level sign up /NI 7 Healthy third sector indicator

Some approaches are not helpful

Integration for the VCS is only developing now and slowly

Requires a whole CYPVCS articulation – organisational not personal

In context

Equality

Ready to accept the cost implications

Understanding commissioning intentions

Key Messages

WSPP future remains unclear

Integration and integrated practice are still works in progress

Commissioning is still a work in progress

The sector has its own needs

Safeguarding has to be a VCS priority and is a microcosm of current challenges and opportunities
