In March 2019, commissioned by the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership (GMHSCP), a partnership of Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation (GMCVO), Voluntary Sector North West (VSNW) Mind in Greater Manchester and Bolton Community and Voluntary Services (Bolton CVS) started working within the Greater Manchester Commissioning Hub to firmly integrate the work of Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations in commissioning throughout Greater Manchester.
‘Commissioning Conversations’ was an exercise designed to capture the views, experiences and ideas of a range of VCSE organisations across Greater Manchester about commissioning. It was delivered by GMCVO at a Greater Manchester level and Bolton CVS in partnership with 10GM within the 10 local Authority area of Greater Manchester. The information gathered through this exercise was used in the development of a Greater Manchester wide VCSE Commissioning Framework which was published by the VCSE Leadership Group and GM Joint Commissioning Hub in and can be found here.
This report includes the findings of the work consultation undertaken by GMCVO as part of Commissioning Conversations.
