Carers Support - potential bidding partnership call

As many of you will be aware, the county council and partners currently invest in a service delivered as the Carers Hub, by People Plus.

We believe this service will be reshaped over the next year and anticipate a new service being awarded, to be delivered from September 2020. It’s not yet clear which funders will be investing in the service in the future, but we do understand the county council we continue to invest in a service.

As I write we are in the depths of discussions with PCNs (Primary Care Networks – clusters of GPs, working together) about the opportunity provided by national funding for social prescribing link workers. Ourselves and VAST have pitched a bold proposition to place this service at the heart of the local voluntary sector, by employing the workers through a consortia approach. This would mean generalists working for ourselves and VAST, able to signpost and support patients to access the broadest range of community and voluntary sector services; instead of drawing upon medical services.

June means Volunteers Week and we have been celebrating!

I am delighted to have been present at two of our six Volunteer Star Awards this year, which have been rolled out from a firm foundation in the east of the county. These awards have been delivered through the hard work of our local teams, supported by our countywide staff, and made possible through the generous sponsorship of local businesses and organisations. May I offer my sincere thanks to everyone who has been involved in making them happen; and there are still two to come!
