The Network meets monthly and meetings are open to all Network Members who wish to attend. Meetings are usually held at EVOC on the first Thursday of every month. Meetings are two hours long, with the first hour dedicated to a themed discussion, usually with a guest speaker, and the second hour focused on feedback from Network Representatives. There is always plenty of opportunity for Members to raise key issues of concern to the Sector, discuss topics raised, and benefit from peer support. Network Meeting papers are available here.
The Network receives dedicated development support from EVOC and Network Representatives attend a wide range of partnership meetings, sub-groups and strategic meetings with the Public Sector on behalf of the Network. They feed back to the Network at the monthly meetings, and receive support from EVOC in their role as Network Representatives.
EVOC produces a monthly newsletter on behalf of the Network which contains news from Network Members, job vacancies, events, funding opportunities and much more. Any organisation working with children, young people and families can submit information for the newsletter by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
