Welcome to Regional Voices for better health
Regional Voices champions the work of voluntary and community organisations to improve health, well-being and care across England. We are a partnership of nine regional networks. Together, we connect to over 25,000 voluntary and community organisations across England. Our coverage is broad, deep and well-established.
We are a voluntary sector strategic partner of the Department of Health and work with the Local Government Association and 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, co-ordinated messages to government, based on evidence and consultation with voluntary and community organisations
