Partnerships between NHS Trusts and VCSE – Survey Request
Posted on behalf of NAVCA who are the group that represent organisations like CCVS. Please do respond if you have the time.
We - NAVCA - are the national membership body specifically for local sector support and development organisations (also known as local infrastructure) in England. We are working with NHS England and NHS Improvement to conduct some research into partnerships between NHS Trusts and organisations within the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector.
More specifically, the research aims to understand examples of these partnerships, how they come about, what supports them and the impact that they achieve. This is all with a view to making practical recommendations for how people can be supported in both the voluntary and public sectors and improve partnerships.
This survey forms an important part of this research and will be vital to creating recommendations in the final report. The survey should only take 5-10 minutes to complete and your time in completing this will be greatly appreciated.
This survey is for those working within VCSE- https://forms.gle/WUWSDd899dtTUUXF8
The Deadline for completion of this survey is Monday 2nd December
The survey, along with other research will be presented and discussed at a workshop in Birmingham on Wednesday January 15th. The workshop will be a mixture of people from the public and voluntary sector and will help to inform recommendations in the final report in March 2020. If you are interested in attending this workshop, please let us know with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject Partnership Scoping Workshop, or complete your name and email at the end of the survey.
If you have any problems completing the survey or wish to discuss this or the wider research further, please contact Tom.Watson@navca.org.uk
Please note: this study excludes partnerships where the main purpose is the provision of hospital based volunteer services. This study will include those partnerships where volunteer services are linked to clinical pathways either through external referrals or signposting, services supporting hospital discharge etc, those using volunteers in their delivery, as well as services directly operating on NHS premises.
