  • Voluntary Sector Assembly – Thursday 16th April & Thursday 25th June

    Voluntary Sector Assembly hosted by Manchester Community Central

    The purpose of the next two Voluntary Sector Assemblies (VSA) is to prepare the voluntary and community sector to meet the many challenges we will face over the next year. We need to be ready.

    Date & Time: Thursday 16 April 2015, 13:00 – 16:30 and
    Thursday 25 June 2015, 13:00 – 16:30
    Venue: Mechanics Institute, 103 Princess St, Manchester, M1 6DD

    In the first VSA on 16 April, we will develop our sector’s approach to the next year through: discussing a draft voluntary sector strategy; reviewing the sector’s response to the previous round of cuts; assessing the impact of devolution; and planning how we wish to engage with local public bodies over the next year.

    At the second VSA on 25 June, we will engage in a debate primarily with Councillors from Manchester City Council based on the discussions held at the first Voluntary Sector Assembly.

    We wish participants to attend both Voluntary Sector Assemblies to ensure continuity.

    Light refreshments will be provided.

    Places are limited, so registering is essential.

    Visit Manchester Community Central’s website to register

    Please note that when you register for this event you are signing up to both dates.

  • Greater Manchester gains control of health & social care funding

    Greater Manchester will begin taking control of its health budget from April this year after a devolution agreement was signed by the Chancellor George Osborne. The region’s councils and health bodies will take over £6 billion allocated for health and social care, with full powers being devolved from April 2016.

    The scope of a memorandum of understanding, approved and countersigned by the Chancellor and Health Secretary on 27th February, includes the entire health and social care system in Greater Manchester – including primary and social care, mental health, community services and public health.

    The trailblazing move sees NHS England, 12 NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, 15 NHS providers and 10 local authorities agree a framework for health and social care – with plans for joint decision-making on integrated care to support physical, mental and social wellbeing.

    Integrated care in Greater Manchester will focus more on preventative work in the community – putting strategies in place to keep people well and as independent as possible. For example, people with long-term conditions such as asthma or heart problems will be treated by specialists in the community as much as possible – only going to hospital when necessary.

    Services will remain part of the NHS or local authorities, but they will be tailored to reflect the needs of the people of Greater Manchester. CCGs and councils will keep their existing accountabilities, legal obligations and funding flows.

    The deal will see the formation of a shadow health and social care strategic partnership body from this April to oversee strategic development of the plans.

    ♦ GMCVO Programme Manager, John Hannen, gives his take on the plans in a short article – see link below.
