Interim report of the VCSE review published
Posted on Thu 26 Mar 2015
The interim report of the VCSE review has now been published. From January to March 2015 representatives from Department of Health (DH), Public Health England (PHE), NHS England and representatives of the VCSE sector have been collecting views from across the voluntary sector on how funding the sector can support a preventative, community-based health and care system. The report reflects what we have heard about the impact, challenges and potential of the VCSE sector and starts to look at what we could do differently in the future. It focuses specifically on three areas:
Defining, achieving, and demonstrating impact
Building capacity and staying sustainable
Promoting equality and addressing health inequalities
The Race Equality Foundation has been involved in this work, and would like to thank anyone who participated or provided feedback. The project team recognise that they have been limited by time and want to have a deeper conversation with the sector to develop a clear set of recommendations. The new government will be briefed on this work following the General Election in May with a view to continuing the review, subject to ministerial approval. We will provide updates on any developments with this work over the coming months.
