VCS Forum

For more information on the next forum please contact Maggie Farey on 01653 600120 or email:

As well as delivering support services and information, RVA has an important role in the representation of voluntary and community sector (VCS) issues when we attend and take part in strategic partnership meetings, policy making consultations and conferences.


We have a formal seat at the Ryedale Strategic Partnership Board as your representative and have input into other groups and partnerships in Ryedale.


In order to fulfil this role effectively it is vital that we hear your voice, whether you are a large, small, formal or informal group. We need to keep up to date with your issues and concerns  – as well as hear about your successes and achievements.


One way we are hoping to improve how we do this is by holding our VCS Forum at local venues throughout the year.

The Forum provides you with an opportunity to come and talk to us about what’s going on in your area, hear from other people about what they have done and speak directly with some of our statutory partners from the District and County Councils as well as the NHS.
