Views sought on VCSE sector’s impact on healthcare provision

10th August 2015

The government has announced the launch of the next phase of a review into the role played by the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in UK health provision.

Coordinated by the Department of Health in partnership with NHS England, Public Health England and representatives from the VCSE sector, the review aims to explore current issues pertaining to investment, and how better funding could help VCSE organisations to maximise their impact within healthcare.

The second phase of this review will canvass opinions on a discussion paper on partnership working and investment, particularly from those who work in the VCSE health and care sector.

It will also examine thoughts on the Voluntary Sector Investment Programme, particularly from those who have expressed an interest in the scheme or have had work funded through it.

The engagement period will run until November 6th 2015, with recommendations set to be published in early 2016.

Alistair Burt, minister of state for community and social care, said: "It is important that we explore how the sector is funded to find the best ways to support the excellent work and recognise the commitment and innovation shown by those who work in the sector."ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801797094-ADNFCR
