Health and Social Care

Our Health and Social Care work gives you a voice in health and social care strategy development and ensures that you're informed about local health and social care policy.

Our Voluntary Sector Support team works with local charities, community groups, statutory organisations and government to influence how health and social care services are delivered by the voluntary sector in Leicester and Leicestershire.

What we’ve worked on

    • Social Prescribing – we worked with Rosebery Medical Centre to create an 18-month Social Prescribing pilot scheme
    • Better Care Together – we have worked with local organisations to understand and respond to the ‘Better Care Together’ review of local healthcare services
    • Leicester School of Medicine Marketplace – we work in partnership with the Leicester School of Medicine to deliver an annual marketplace event where VCSE organisations can promote their work and students can learn about the role of the local VCSE sector in health and wellbeing

Network and Learn Sessions

Every quarter we give local VCSE groups the opportunity to come together and discuss issues relating to health and social care in local communities.
