Healthy Communities Programme

Wed 14 Jun 2017

Many of our members will have seen the recent opportunity to comment at the ‘soft market testing’ stage of a new county council programme called ‘Healthy Communities’. The details are attached if you have not.

We believe there is a great opportunity for the VCSE sector to deliver much of this work, but not in the current tender specification format. Neither do we agree with the overly medicalised model as currently proposed. We are working hard to offer a different, community-based point of view on this potential service. If we can persuade the council to take a different approach, then we hope to convene a Team Staffordshire bid for this work. I will keep you posted accordingly, so no need to get in touch at this stage.

Garry Jones, Chief Executive.
