New models of care: working together for a healthier London

Posted on 24 March 2016

The research in this report has been undertaken by the London for All programme manager as a contribution to the 'New Models of Care' event held at London Metropolitan University on 23 March 2016. The objectives of the research as twofold:

  • explore the experience of voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector health practitioners with regard to their support needs at a local, regional and national level.
  • consider current and future measures to ensure the long term effectiveness of support at the local, regional and national level and the opportunities for collective action by the VCSE sector, to achieve this.

The motivation for the research springs from the core aim of London for All, to strengthen voluntary and community sector capacity. In particular the research recognises the challenges of austerity and seeks to develop collective strategies to enhance VCSE action.
