Locality’s research on the role of VCSE organisations in neighbourhood health

Posted on behalf of Locality:

Locality has launched a new health and wellbeing report, Going further together. It’s the newest instalment in their work as part of the government’s VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, working alongside NHS England’s Voluntary Partnerships Team.

It examines the critical role of VCSE organisations in neighbourhood health ecosystems.

The report highlights:

  • Factors for success in involving VCSE organisations in the delivery of health services and promotion of good health within neighbourhoods.
  • Recommendations for the health system to embed this learning in neighbourhoods across the country.
  • Recommendations for local VCSE organisations to improve their partnership working within neighbourhood health ecosystems.
  • It brings these issues to life through real-life examples of partnership working already taking places across the country.

They have also produced “explainer” documents for voluntary organisations on Integrated Care Systems and the Primary Care Network Direct Enhanced Services (DES) contract. The latter is available on request via [email protected].
