Two events to share the latest learning and materials on person- and community-centred approaches. Launched in May 2015, Realising the Value is a major vehicle for delivering the ‘new relationship with people and communities’ set out in the Five Year Forward View.

NHS Guidance Urges Role for VCSE in STP Engagement

New NHS England guidance on engaging local people in Sustainability and Transformation plans urges those responsible for developing plans to link with VCSE organisations, with an emphasis on people who are less frequently heard. 

The guidance document, 'Engaging Local People - a guide for local areas developing Sustainability and Transformation Plans', has been published to advise local health and care leaders how to put their communities at the heart of their work. 

Realising the Value - New Behavioural Insight Guides Published

The Realising the Value consortium has published two new guides written by the Behavioural Insights Team, outlining how the science of behaviour can help people to self-manage their health and wellbeing more effectively.

Devolution Survey - Has Your Organisation Been Involved?

The devolution agenda is continuing to roll out with 12 areas across England now having Devolution Deals in place, and deals in more areas up for negotiation. 

Devolving power to local communities offers huge potential to give people a greater say in shaping the areas they live in, but to date engagement with local people and the voluntary and community sector has been patchy. 

We have teamed up with NCVO, Locality, NAVCA and CFG to build a better picture about the level of local engagement with voluntary and community organisations in devolution areas. 

Confidential Care Information Public Events

Opportunities to have your say on how your health and care information is used.

In July 2016 a review was published which makes recommendations on how health and care information should be used.

The Department of Health is now seeking views from patients, professionals and the public on how health and care information should be used. A public consultation was launched in July to capture people's views.

Community Grants for Organisations Getting Patients Involved

NHS England's community grants scheme which celebrates participation in health care is open for applications. Grants of up to £1000 are available to voluntary organisations that want to showcase how they have been involving patients, service-users and the public in improving health services.

To apply you must be a voluntary or community organisation and be able to share your project successes in a creative way – it could be by producing a film, animation or comic – it’s up to you!

Health and Care Innovation Expo 2016 – 7 - 8 September 2016, Manchester Central.

New Case Studies - Using NHS Grants to Meet Patient Needs

Regional Voices has published three new case studies which show how innovative use of NHS Grants to voluntary organisations can respond to the needs of patients and the public and target health inequalities. 

Grants are an important part of the funding mix for voluntary organisations. Many organisations don't have the capacity to compete or deliver large scale contracts but, with a grant, can make significant contributions to improved health outcomes. 

New Briefing on the VCSE Review Recommendations

Regional Voices has published a new briefing on the recommendations of the VCSE Review. The review examined role of the VCSE in improving health, wellbeing and care outcomes. 

The report is based on the largest ever review of the voluntary sector's involvement in statutory health and social care, urges hospitals, clinical commissioning groups and councils to do more to involve expert charities in the design and delivery of services of all kinds.

Charities should be deeply involved at every level of the health and care system, according to a new report backed by Alistair Burt, Simon Stevens and Duncan Selbie.

 The report, based on the largest ever review of the voluntary sector’s involvement in statutory health and social care, urges local hospitals, clinical commissioning groups and councils to do more to involve expert charities in the design and delivery of services of all kinds.
