Securing funding from partners to support schemes remains a challenge. Benefits/Outcomes – Although these have been defined for the Time & Care Banking and Youth Volunteering schemes, the overall programme outcomes are still in development. Robustly defining benefits, especially cashable, continues to be a challenging proposition with the type of work involved in the existing schemes. Benefit definition is an issue for the WWC workstreams although plans are in place to address this. Stakeholder Engagement – Improvements have been made through the revised membership of the SC group. This will be a challenge over the coming months as we liaise to develop our plans for 2015/16. Gaining partner sign up across the county for the VCS Framework also has the potential to be challenging for the ECSG.
