Maximising commissioning outcomes through working with the voluntary and community sector

This workshop explored how to maximise commissioning outcomes through working with the  voluntary and community sector (VCS). 

Workshop outcomes:

  • An understanding of the contribution the VCS can make to supporting person centred care
  • How to capture local views, experiences and needs
  • How to develop an action plan to embed partnership working with the VCS
  • Different approaches to developing the market and collaborating with VCS providers  

Key learning: 

  • It is important to map local VCS organisations and what they do – this will enable greater discussion about engaging with the VCS around commissioning decisions
  • The VCS is close to patients and focused on wellbeing – they are often innovative in their approach and less risk adverse.
