Earlier this year the GM VCSE Leadership Group and the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership commissioned a partnership of Bolton CVS, Mind in Greater Manchester, GMCVO and VSNW to ensure that the voluntary community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector plays a comprehensive role in commissioning both at a local and Greater Manchester level.
As part of this work in June we held a listening exercise with the VCSE sector about their commissioning experiences. We asked organisations:
- Where commissioning had gone well
- Where it hadn’t gone as well
- What were the challenges and constraints you had experienced in being involved
- What commissioning would look like in an ideal world
Following the feedback received at this event together with that from discussions undertaken with a wide range of commisioners, we have written a consultative draft of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care VCSE Commissioning Framework. Before it is finalised, however, it is essential that VCSE organisations have an opportunity to discuss and comment on the draft. document
