The overall aim of the VCS Alliance programme is to support children, young people and their families to achieve positive outcomes. We want to do this by building family and community resilience and self-reliance. We aim to do this by developing better links between Durham County Council’s Children’s Services, key partner agencies and the Voluntary and Community Sector across County Durham.

In Durham, we recognise the need to ensure we offer support to children and families at the earliest opportunity as this is more likely to affect positive change. We also recognise that we need to offer support to whole families as we know adult issues can have a significant impact on children and vice versa.

County Durham benefits from a strong Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) who are often able to provide ongoing, long term support at a local level that enables families to remain supported without the need for more formal children’s services.
