The contribution of the voluntary sector


July 2016

Annie Crombie, Chief Executive Officer of the Consortium of Voluntary Adoption Agencies (CVAA), discusses the role of the voluntary sector in achieving permanence for children.

Key points discussed in the presentation were:

  • The importance of strategic specialism and how voluntary sector organisations are often well-equipped to provide this
  • The greater scope for flexibility and innovation of the voluntary sector in comparison to the statutory sector
  • The ability of the voluntary sector to share good practice across borders, working independently outside the system

Here is a recording of Annie’s presentation:
