I want to welcome you all to the latest edition of our newsletter.

First of all, I would like to introduce you all to our newest member of the team – Rebecca Daddow, who joined us in August from Macmillan Cancer Care and brings with her many years of experience in social and policy action research, community development and programme management. Rebecca, or Becs as she likes to be known, is our new Senior Programme Lead and I know you will all join me in welcoming her to the Coalition hub team.

Since joining, Becs has been leading on, together with members of our co-production group, our work with the self-care team to help influence the programme objectives and to shape the delivery plan.

The wider hub team has been focusing on meeting and talking with our all partners to get a greater understanding of their current and future initiatives to see where we can provide the necessary support and help them to align with other partners’ activity. We are hearing about some great pieces of work that we will be able to share with you soon.

Finally, we would like to start hearing from you, our members, on some of the great work we know you are doing, particularly that relate to our three Cs – better conversations, stronger communities and work in co-production. If you have any resources, case studies or reports you would like to share, please do get in touch with us.

Director, C4CC

New WOW! Exchange Launched
National VoicesWellbeing Our Way programme has launched the WOW! Exchange: an online catalogue of exciting and innovative practice in health and care. The site lists projects by charities and community organisations, and between public services and their voluntary-sector partners.

It is completely open access and you can use it to identify examples of great practice that might inspire or complement your own work. Charities and community groups can also share their own work using the ‘share your projects’ button. To keep up to date with Wellbeing Our Way, sign up to WOW Now, our e-newsletter, and join the conversation using #WOWhealth.

The Inclusive Change Programme  

Sian Lockwood from Community Catalysts writes about their Inclusive Change Programme for our blog, focusing on the work they have recently been involved in, in Wakefield. 

It details how they worked in Knottingley and Havercroft & Ryhill, spending time learning about the neighbourhoods, listening to stories, building trust and modelling co-production, which had a huge impact. Read Sian's blog and where to get more information on the Inclusive Change Programme here.


VCSE Personal Health Budget Support Networks

The Voluntary and Community Sector (VCSE) has an exciting opportunity in supporting Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in the scale up and roll out of personal health budgets (PHBs), and in enabling greater choice, control and flexibility to people who are interested in taking them up.

Voluntary Voices would like to invite you to be part of a learning and support network for the VCSE, which will enable you to understand support options for people with PHBs and how to work in partnership with CCGs locally to develop an offer in your locality.
