Untapped Potential: Bringing the Voluntary Sector's Strengths to Health and Care Transformation

"The health and care system is in a state of flux. Ambitious efficiency targets and rising need are forcing the NHS to find new ways of working. Integration is a watchword, and change is happening— including through Vanguard Sites and devolution.



The NHS Five Year Forward View outlines an ambition to harness the ‘renewable energy represented by patients and communities’. Charities have a role to play here, with the Forward View also identifying the need for stronger partnerships with the charitable and voluntary sector.



The changes we need will not happen at the scale and pace required naturally. The voluntary and community sector (VCS) needs to make a strategic case for its inclusion in the design and delivery of the future health system. The Richmond Group of Charities and its partners commissioned charity consultancy and think tank NPC to undertake research to provide the evidence needed to support this."
