FutureNHS Working in Partnership with the Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise Sector network
People working in VCSE organisations can join Working in Partnership with the Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise Sector network on the FutureNHS platform.
This workspace is designed for those working in health and care systems to share information, learning and resources showcasing collaborative working between the NHS, local government, the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector and other local partners.
There is a range of tools and resources available on the workspace, including the Framework for addressing practical barriers to integration of VCSE sector organisations which provides:
> An overview of the three areas which form the main barriers and challenges to partnership working between the VCSE and statutory sector, which are commissioning, service design and delivery; sharing data, insight and intelligence, and; funding and sustainable investment.
>A menu of approaches that others have adopted or are trying which can support addressing those barriers.
>A series of detailed case examples drawn from different ICSs which provide an understanding of the processes that people have gone through which take account of the journey of implementation and local context.

It is a place where you can make connections and access important policy information, guidance and resources, to support you on your journey to becoming a thriving integrated care system (ICS). You can network with colleagues who are tackling similar issues, to find solutions, pose questions and share knowledge, through online discussions.

It also helps systems to focus on self-care and prevention so that people can live healthier and more independent lives.
