Voluntary health organisations are key players in the transformation of public services and in the shift towards prevention and early intervention. The changing policy environment is both an opportunity and a challenge for voluntary health organisations.
This one day taster programme is designed to support you to work collaboratively and in partnership with other organisations and the public sector. You will use an interactive approach to apply what you learn to your own situation.
You will gain insight into:
- Opportunities and challenges of working with statutory health bodies
- Strategic questions to prepare for partnerships
- Practical skills for developing successful partnerships
Who it is for
