Durham County VCS Alliance


The overall aim of the VCS Alliance is to improve outcomes for vulnerable children, young people and their families and reduce the numbers of re referrals into statutory services by further developing the links between Durham County Council’s Children’s Services and the Voluntary and Community Sector.
Managed by Lindsey Ellwood, there are four VCS Alliance workers linked to the One Point and Families First services who will be making links with the local VCS organisations and enabling families to participate in activities and support services within their own area.

New report from VCS Aliance

The Voluntary Community Sector Alliance gave a presentation about their work to the County Durham Partnership Board at a recent meeting.

It was felt that information about their work may be beneficial to members of the wider thematic partnerships.

Please find attached a briefing note about the VCS Alliance Programme and links to more detailed information about their work.
