The Department of Health is changing the way it funds the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector. The Strategic Partner Programme is being replaced by a new national partnership, the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, and applications for membership are invited.
Through the Alliance, the Department of Health (DH), NHS England and Public Health England (PHE) will work with VCSE organisations to promote equality and address health inequalities and help people, families and communities to achieve and maintain wellbeing.
Applicants must demonstrate how their organisation, as an Alliance member working across the health and care system, can contribute to the priorities of DH, NHS England and PHE to help address the needs of those who are most disadvantaged and excluded.
The closing date for applications is noon on 22 February 2017.
Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application in mid March 2017.
