The Role of the Advisory Group

Advisory Groups are a cross-sector group of individuals who help our staff teams by keeping them up to date with developments in their sector and locality.


Local Advisory Groups are advisory only. They have no legal, financial, or managerial responsibility for Common Purpose. Nor are they representative bodies. All Advisory Group members attend as individuals in a voluntary and unpaid capacity which they are invited to take on in their personal, rather than professional, roles. If any issue arises at Advisory Group meetings which conflicts with their professional role, members exclude themselves from that section of the discussion.
