The GM VCSE Leadership Group was set up as a coalition of the willing seeking to promote the role and involvement of the VCSE sector and communities in Greater Manchester devolution. Members of the Leadership Group are expected to be Sector Leaders who can act as ‘catalysts and connectors’ on behalf of the Sector. The composition of the group was originally agreed as one regional and three local infrastructure organisations, six provider organisations, three equalities organisations, two social enterprises and one member for Healthwatch.
The Leadership Group nominated Warren Escadale as its independent, non-voting, Chair. As Chief Executive of Voluntary Sector North West, which is also the Secretariat Lead of the Leadership Group, the Chair is responsible for governance and strategic matters relevant to the Leadership Group.
The Leadership Group includes and is supported by the city-region and locality VCSE support organisations, including GMCVO (city-region), 10GM and its members (localities) and VSNW (NW regional, providing independent chair and secretariat). This site covers the work that we do together as a leadership group. For information about other work done by each member, please visit the member websites.
