Welcome to Regional Voices
Regional Voices is a nationwide partnership of regional voluntary sector networks which champion and support the involvement of local voluntary and community organisations in developing policy and designing and delivering services. We are unique in combining national capacity and coverage with the intelligence, insights and connections generated from our regionally based networks and teams and together we connect to over 25,000 voluntary and community organisations across England.
We are a voluntary sector Strategic Partner of the Department of Health, NHS England and Public Health England and work with other partners, supporting voluntary and community organisations to understand changes within the NHS and support organisations to influence these changes, in order to achieve better outcomes.
To improve health and reduce health inequalities, we:
- connect policy makers with the work of voluntary and community organisations at local, regional and national levels, to shape and improve health and care services for local communities.
- inform voluntary and community organisations about changing health structures and how to engage with them
- champion better commissioning and co-production of health, well-being and care services, in partnership between statutory and voluntary organisations
- influence health and social care policy at regional and national levels through identifying good practice and sending powerful, coordinated messages to government, based on evidence and consultation with voluntary and community organisations
