We support the Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise (VCFSE) sector, providing advice, guidance and toolkits for innovative partnership working with health and care systems.

If you are a VCFSE organisation registered in the West of England, we are keen to support you and to help you explore potential partnership opportunities with your local Integrated Care System (ICS), to improve health and wellbeing outcomes across the region.

Background on the original VCFSE Partnership for Better Health programme available here.
