Regional Voices has launched its third survey that asks the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector about engagement with health and welllbeing boards – what is working well, what could work better and what support would help. Results are being used to influence policy makers, develop support mechanisms and share interesting practice. The survey is aimed at:
- voluntary sector representatives on health and wellbeing boards
- Healthwatch representatives on health and wellbeing boards
- The wideer voluntary, community and social enterprise sector
It asks about routes into the health and wellbeing board – how the VCSE sector is able to influence the joint strategic needs assessment, the health and wellbeing strategy and local commissioning. We hope to capture how engagement with the boards is changing over time. We also include a new question, looking at HWB use of local Compacts.
Take the survey about engagement between the VCSE sector and health and wellbeing board in your area. The survey should take 10-15 minutes to fill in, depending on how much you would like to say.
The closing date for the survey will be midday on 23 January 2015
