Arm in Arm

This Centre for Mental Health report explores the relationships between the VCSE sector and statutory agencies.

In particular; it focuses on the impact of reduced local government funding which has created a greater reliance on VCSE organisations;  ‘More for less’ contracts in which commissioners seek to obtain the same levels of service for less funding; and short-term or rolling contracts and how these impact on staffing and service delivery. Read it here.Although this report focuses on mental health, the issues and barriers identified are likely to be similar in other VCSE and statutory relationships.  Sue Ogle, CEO at VAC is interested in hearing from VCSE Alliance members on their experiences.

Please phone Sue on 024 7622 0381 or email her to arrange a time to meet.
