  • Challenges of VCS reps
  • 1) Conflicting interests
  • The golden rules
  • Before each activity involving representation,
    consciously remind yourself which hat you have
    on and leave other hats outside.
  • Where you note a conflict of interest, tell
    others at the meeting about this, and take their
    advice about how to proceed.
  • If appropriate, take yourself out of the meeting
    while the issue which sparked your conflict of
    interest is discussed.
  • If necessary, resign from one or other of your
    commissions

16
CCEN Seminar- Children and Young People
  • Challenges of VCS reps( continuation)
  • 2) Strategic Ability
  • VCS need to demonstrate their strategic abilities
    through the way they communicate e.g. feeding
    back to CFN meetings, taking VCS view back to
    boards
  • 3) Role Responsibilities
  • VCS reps need to be aware of their role and
    responsibilities
  • 4) Smaller Groups
  • Hard to engage
  • Lack of involvement and not showing up to the
    partnership meetings
  • It harms the credibility of the sector
  • Tighter recruitment process create danger of
    excluding groups
  • 5) Attending Meetings
  • VCS reps who cannot attend meetings should always
    try and arrange for some-one else to deputise. At
    the same time colleague from from the Council
    etc should understand that VCS have pressures on
    their time too
