Expressions of Interest for Voluntary Voice Elections 2018 now open


Having a strong voluntary sector voice at a strategic level is vital. One way this is achieved is through the Voluntary Voice programme which is the process through which representatives from organisations obtain their mandate to speak on behalf of the sector at various strategic partnerships.


Elected representatives hold the post for two years. As current elected representatives have been in post since January 2016 and we are now holding elections for 2018 – 2020. Newly elected representatives will be in post from 1st May 2018.


Elections for a Lead and Deputy Representatives are being held for the following partnerships:

  • Devon Strategic Partnership
  • Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)
  • Provider Engagement Network (PEN)
  • Safer Devon Partnership –
  • Local Nature Partnership
