We will soon be recruiting for the role of Chair of the VCSE Assembly.

The Chair will provide leadership and direction to the VCSE Assembly and to enable the Assembly to both collaborate and connect effectively with a wide and diverse range of partners and stakeholders, on key issues affecting the VCSE Sector and the wider ICS ambitions.

The Chair will actively participate as a member of the Integrated Care System (ICS) Partnership Board to represent the VCSE sector, as well as effectively and inclusively hearing the voice of the sector – from grass roots/mutual aid groups to large national charities within the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) to appropriately reflect these views to the membership of ICS Partnership Board.

The role of the Chair would also drive forward the VCSE Assembly work programme, linked to the emerging ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ between the VCSE and health and social care in support of the ambitions in the NHS Long Term Plan, and would play a vital role in effectively communicating with the sector on the opportunities and benefits of collaborative working.

The Chair would take a leading role in directing engagement and coproduction opportunities to ensure timely and responsive involvement of the VCSE sector in the development of significant health and care proposals and plans in Norfolk and Waveney.
