Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation

First Greater Manchester Mental Health Strategy Integrated VCSE Forum

This will be the first meeting of the GM Mental Health VCSE (Voluntary, Community, Social Enterprise) Forum, linking directly with the implementation of the Greater Manchester Mental Health Strategy - see summary document attached. The meetings have been designed to ensure that the fullest range of VCSE partners, involved with delivering emotional wellbeing and mental health support (including dementia support) to children, young people, adults and families across Greater Manchester have a chance to understand, influence and implement the strategy. Also, to ensure inclusion, transparency and accountability across and within the VCSE sector.

The first forum meeting will focus on the Greater Manchester (GM) wide elements of the £134m GM Mental Health investment proposition that was agreed at the end of July 2017; it is a chance to ensure that VCSE sector colleagues are represented across all elements of the governance structure now in place to ensure the delivery of the GM Mental Health Strategy and it will also be an opportunity to discuss, in detail, specific prioritised areas within the strategy. Please come along with ideas, approaches and mechanisms that will enable the implementation of the strategy by ensuring that the valuable contributions by the VCSE sector, clearly recognised as being critical for success, are linked in and realised.

The outcomes and ideas generated on the 12th December by the Forum, will also inform the VCSE sector input into the Greater Manchester Mental Health Improvement Collaborative (venue tbc) on the 13th December.
