WCVA are Looking for New Members to Join their Advisory Panels

Share this article

Panel members are volunteers; they provide guidance, scrutiny and feedback to our various funding schemes, helping us to make good decisions and stay impartial. Being on a panel wouldn’t take much time out of your busy year, but could provide valuable experience in charity grant management, networking and current affairs.

Each funding scheme that WCVA manage is supported by an advisory panel (sometimes referred to as a ‘project board’): it is chaired by a member of WCVA’s Board of Trustees and its members are independent of WCVA, selected for their interest, knowledge and experience. When WCVA manages a funding scheme, they employ members of staff to carry out detailed assessments of applications’ eligibility, answers to application questions and value for money. Their findings are then passed on to the panel members, whose role is to scrutinise the assessment information, query it if necessary, and make recommendations to the Chair for a final decision on whether to award the funds. They can also act as a steering group for the funding scheme.

WCVA recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. They are completely reviewing the membership of all our funding advisory panels and actively seeking fresh insights, outlooks and expertise.

WCVA are committed to being as inclusive as possible and their goal is to be able to hear as many different voices as possible on the advisory panels. Voices that are from diverse backgrounds and that are often under-represented on panels such as this.

With this goal in mind, WCVA welcome applications from individuals from all backgrounds and recognise that currently they are lacking voices from young people, people from different religious backgrounds, trans people, people living with a disability as well as individuals from the lesbian, gay and bisexual+ community.
