At this session we will be discussing Working as part of a consortium with presentations from a range of providers able to share their experiences of being a lead provider, or a support organisation and as a provider.

The Tower Hamlets VCS Leadership Forum gives you the opportunity to strengthen your networks, knowledge and impact and to influence the wider picture in the borough.

The Tower Hamlets VCS Leadership Forum gives you the opportunity to strengthen your networks, knowledge and impact and to influence the wider picture in the borough.
 

THCVS has focussed the forum on exploring working in a consortium as Tower Hamlets is currently consulting on the Community Commissioning programme to replace the Mainstream grants programme, which shows the preference on the part of local commissioners to have single contracts with larger providers. This may impact particularly on smaller, specialist providers which traditionally have relied on a small amount of grant funding [and often, considerable volunteer input] to deliver services.  Many organisations may struggle to compete by themselves in the commissioning/large contract environment so will need to consider collaborating via a partnership or consortium approach.

Definition of a consortium ‘When, a number of separate bodies get together to form one contracting channel designed to create economies of scale, efficiency savings and to appeal to the desire of funders/commissioners to deal with one entity’.

The aim of the VCS Leadership Forum is to enhance and strengthen the leadership of the voluntary and community sector and social enterprises in Tower Hamlets. Aimed at Directors, Managers and Coordinators of organisations in the borough, it provides an opportunity for networking, information sharing. (We will also share some morning coffee and croissants.)

If you are in a leadership role, the Forum provides an opportunity to discuss and learn from others in the same situation as you:
• How to negotiate the statutory sector
• How to work together for maximum impact
• How to maximise your resources
• Best practice in all areas of VCS leadership and management

Previous sessions have been great networking and learning opportunities. We really look forward to seeing new and familiar faces.
