GMCVO VCSE Assembly: Developing an Integrated Care System in Greater Manchester - perspectives from the VCSE sector

13th May 2021

GMCVO held the above virtual event on the 13th May 2021 as a follow up to the event held on the 4 February 2021. 

Conversations have moved on in Greater Manchester since February, especially in light of the White Paper published by the Department of Health and Social Care, and we wanted to ensure that the voice of the VCSE sector is involved in the developments, both at a GM and locality level.

This event provided an update on the GM developments and highlighted some examples of good work already happening to connect VCSE sector organisations into the development of new locality structures across GM. There were also be discussions that focussed on what things VCSE organisations might need to get more involved in influencing these developments over the next few months and how the VCSE Commissioning Framework can be used to help support this.
