UCLPartners masterclass: Working with the Voluntary and Community Sector
Tue 14 March 2017, 14:30 – 16:30 GMT
UCLPartners Involvement Leads network has been set up to encourage wider sharing and learning across partners. Over the latter half of 2014, various meetings were held for patient, carer and public involvement and engagement leads across UCLPartners, in which discussions demonstrated a broad eagerness to learn from each other and work together. This network therefore aims to strengthen collaboration and improve the way partners learn and share, in order to focus on tackling our key challenges.
This masterclass will focus on working with the voluntary and community sector, and will be based on the summary document produced by UCLPartners and the London Voluntary Services Council. This summary was produced because we believe that working in partnership with our community and patients is the way to transform our best research and ideas into sustainable improvements in health. We are committed to strengthening our partnerships to enable us to find new ways to involve and engage people to better meet their needs and expectations.
LVSC is involved with this work not only as a member of Regional Voices, a nationwide partnership of regional voluntary sector networks which champion and support the involvement of the local VCSE sector in developing healthcare policy and designing and delivering services, but also as the collaborative leader of London’s VCSE sector as whole.
An agenda for the masterclass will be circulated prior to the event. In the meantime, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact Chelsea Atherton on firstname.lastname@example.org.
