GLA Civil Society Strategy for London

Source By: Hackney CVS

The Greater London Authority (GLA) is in the process of scoping and developing the first-ever Civil Society Strategy for London. The Social Innovation Partnership (TSIP) and, partner, Collaborate CIC have been appointed to collect a range of insights and opinions from Civil Society on how the GLA can best engage with, and support Civil Society now and in the future. This will lead to a set of practical options for the GLA to implement.

This strategy will ensure that the GLA gains input from organisations across Civil Society, not just the loudest voices. Generating real time data, it will also help improve the development of policy based on the needs of grassroots organisations, and ensure there is more data and clarity for local authorities and commissioners on how to act on the big issues. 

GLA have a survey online where they are hoping to gather a wide range of opinons and are holding a consultation event on 5 October at Hackney CVS - more details can be found here.

New commissioners guide

Source By: NHS

Healthy London Partnership has launched a new guide  this week, discussing how commissioners can work with the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector to sustainably deliver improved population health.

HLP have written this guide with support and input from a large number of change makers across the system, including from PHE, the Greater London Authority, New Philanthropy Capital and Social Enterprise UK.

The guide is intended to stimulate dialogue on the value of the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector, its ability to create additional capacity for improving health and care in the community, and the role that commissioners should play in ensuring the sector remains diverse and sustainable. It discusses how the commissioning process can be adapted to ‘level the playing field’ for VCSE organisations; as well as how commissioners can begin to provide proactive support – or incubation – to shift the sector toward developing more sustainable business models and activate the sector around unmet needs. This is not only critical to ensuring that public sector funding is used most effectively, but also to ensuring that people and communities have access to a range of local services which are able to meet their needs, sustainably.

To support the launch  a number of small clips have been produced, including this one featuring Jane Milligan.
