Third Sector Partnership Committee

The Third Sector Partnership Committee, which meets on a quarterly basis, is the principal consultative forum between the statutory and voluntary sectors in Conwy and has responsibility for implementing the aims and objectives of the Partnership Agreement “Delivering Together: Shared Principles – Shared Priorities” between Conwy County Borough Council and the Third Sector. CVSC is one of the third sector representatives on this group.

North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Compact

This is a Partnership Agreement between the North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner and the Voluntary Services Councils of North Wales on behalf of Third Sector organisations in North Wales.

It provides a framework to improve engagement, develop shared aims and objectives, mutual respect and understanding and will assist the Commissioner and Third Sector partners to improve the quality of services for the people of North Wales.

 Health and Social Care

The voluntary sector makes a significant contribution to Health and Social Care services, complementing statutory services by bridging gaps in services and supporting seamless service provision.

It is recognised by Welsh Government as a key partner in delivering its health and wellbeing policy, which is reflected in the vision for the NHS Wales where local people are central.

CVSC has two officers who liaise with Third Sector, Health Board and Local Authority to ensure the Health and Social Care provision in Conwy is as strong and united as possible. This includes sitting on development steering groups and hosting a regular Health and Social Care cross sector Network.

The Armed Forces Covenant

The Armed forces Covenant is made up of representatives from Conwy County Borough Council, the Armed Forces in Conwy and the Voluntary, Education and Health Sectors, and was signed in 2014

The aim of the Covenant is to encourage local communities to support the Armed Forces community in their area; promote understanding and awareness amongst the public of issues affecting the Service community and recognise and remember the sacrifices made.  The organisations involved have made a commitment to ensure that Conwy has a sustainable Armed Forces and Veteran community and that service provision meets the needs of this community.
