North Yorkshire VCS Strategic Leaders Group

We’ve had an excellent response to April’s survey asking for information about the impact of Covid-19 on voluntary groups and organisations.

We will be sharing the survey findings via Zoom and discussing what they mean for communities, funders, planners and the sector. We want to explore how to build on the ‘positives’ the research has thrown up about the Covid-19 crisis, plus share information about our future work.

Who should attend? 

This meeting is designed for trustees, chief executives, directors and key decision makers of voluntary groups and charities, however large or small, from across North Yorkshire.

What will you learn?

You will be able to find out about the challenges, changes and positives the sector has highlighted, and help Community First Yorkshire to continue to adapt and respond to the sector’s changing needs.


The meeting will be chaired by Leah Swain, Chief Executive Community First Yorkshire with the findings presented by Caroline O’Neill, Head of Policy and Partnerships. Also attending are Mark Hopley, Head of Community and Volunteer Support who can provide qualitative insight from his team’s direct work with groups and Dewi Winkle, VCS Health Partnership Manager at Community First Yorkshire.


This meeting will take place on zoom. Please note the zoom link will be emailed out ahead of the meeting.


For any questions on the event please email Caroline O’Neill, Head of Policy and Partnerships
