1         Minutes and Matters Arising:
          Minutes of the meeting on 8 December
          2009 were agreed.

2         Pan London CAF Protocol
          Valerie Judge from GOL ran through the
          Pan London CAF Protocol which is
          available via the Young London Matters
          website www.younglondonmatters.org
          There is an ELearning Course being run
          by ME Learning which is currently free of
          Thresholds and descriptors within the
          protocol are useful for VCS organisations.
          A discussion on Boroughs’ experience of
          using the CAF followed. VJ – CAF
          should be used first and foremost as an
          ‘assessment’ and could then be used to
          refer on. VJ asked VCS to feedback on its
          experience of using the CAF.
          Toni will be representing the VCS at the
                                                     TW       25 Feb
          Pan London Integrated Working Network
          meeting on 25 February.

3         Follow up from WSPP Meeting of 3 Feb
          Sharon Long reported that discussion on
          future funding was still happening and
          that a decision was due by the end of
          February. If we haven’t heard by then we
          won’t hear until June.

          be out in August but fund will probably go
          to 6 or 7 large providers. VCS needs to be
          aware of this and investigate collaborative
          working in order to be in with a chance.
