LCVS and City of Liverpool College join up to debate devolution agenda

As the Westminster government gears up to devolve more of its powers away from the centre and towards the other UK regions, two questions present themselves to us: “What’s in it for Liverpool?” and “Where does the voluntary sector fit in?”

To address these and other questions, LCVS will be holding an event at the City of Liverpool College’s Learning Exchange building on Roscoe Street, Liverpool on 10th March.

The event offers an opportunity to hear about and discuss what devolution means – and could mean – for voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups.

It will also feature the launch of research findings from Liverpool John Moores University about the size and shape of the VCFSE sector across Liverpool City Region.

LCVS Chief Executive Officer Tony Okotie said:

“This is a great opportunity for voluntary sector organisations from across the whole Liverpool City Region to meet and discuss the impact of the devolution agenda on the region and on their activities. By coming together, we can look to create a unified approach to making the most of devolution over the coming years. There is huge potential here for us to achieve great things, and I’m determined not to let this opportunity slip.”

The event is being organised by a collective partnership of VCFSE infrastructure organisations from across the City Region, with the support of Voluntary Sector North West (VSNW) and the City of Liverpool College.

This partnership includes: LCVS, Community Foundations for Lancashire & Merseyside, Church & Society (Diocese of Liverpool), Community Action: Wirral, Halton & St Helens VCA, Knowsley CVS & Volunteer Centre, Merseyside Disability Federation, Merseyside Expanding Horizons, Merseyside Youth Association, Network for Europe, Sefton CVS, Social Enterprise Network, 3tc, VOLA, and Volunteer Centre Liverpool.

This event is for groups from across the City Region as well as key decision-makers thinking about the role of the VCFSE in the social and economic future of the City Region.
