The VCS Leaders Network was created in 2015 to provide leaders of Medway's charity and voluntary sector organisations - large and small - with a stronger voice.  The Network provides members with their own platform for debate, sharing of good practice, collaborative working, effective networking and peer support.

Led by a Steering Group made up of representative leaders from across the sector, members of the Steering Group give their time to deliver events and actions on behalf of the wider network.

The group is facilitated by MVA, as part of the Project Medway initiative, and we host this digital platform to support the goals of the whole network.

"Together we can harness the full power of our network to achieve something quite remarkable."    

(John Norley, Past Chair of VCS Leaders Network)

If you have any suggestions about what else we could be doing to achieve our goals, then contact your Steering Group who can help to explore your ideas and take them forward.
