Health and Wellbeing

Welcome to Worcestershire’s Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) health and wellbeing initiative.  This project is managed by Community First  on behalf of the VCS.
We encourage and support collaborative activities, helping to secure the best health and wellbeing outcomes for Worcestershire people.

We aim to connect community groups, charities, social enterprises and not for profit organisations with each other.  We also focus on strengthening links with statutory partners including NHS Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), Worcestershire County Council and the 6 District Councils.

We communicate with VCS organisations and stakeholders by:

• Informing
• Engaging
• Representing

We also work alongside the county’s 3 NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups and signpost organisations to the VCS Associate Scheme.  Membership of these schemes enables on-going engagement so that health and wellbeing organisations can be involved and have their say in local activities with NHS commissioners.
