About Us

We are a network of voluntary and community sector groups with an interest in Health and Social Care. We are open to any interested individuals or groups -  join us via this website.

Our aims are to ensure:

  • the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) perspective is heard in the Health and Social Care planning and commissioning of services in City and Hackney
  • that we have accountable and supported VCS representatives in Health and Social Care planning and commissioning meetings in City and Hackney
  • that Health and Social Care VCS groups have opportunities to network and to share good practice in City and Hackney
  • that Health and Social Care VCS groups have access to quality information on local & national policy, planning,  funding that will assist them to deliver quality services to Hackney residents.
