Norfolk’s Voluntary Sector Engagement Project plays an important role in ensuring that Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) discussions benefit from voluntary and community sector (VCS) experience and expertise. The partnership allows the HWB to deliver its aim of effective and transparent design and development of policies, programmes and public services that meet the needs of individuals. It is particularly influential in tackling some of the impacts of welfare reform, selecting priorities for mental health services, supporting the Joint Strategic Needs Analysis (JSNA) and contributing to integrated service planning.Norfolk’s Voluntary Sector Engagement Project, funded by the Health and Wellbeing Board, continues the strategic integration of the voluntary sector started through the original Compact agreement.
