The future of health and social care services is of interest to many Camden residents. The contribution of the voluntary and community sector to the delivery of health and social care services is changing and the sector in turn relies heavily on the input and support of local residents and communities. All these elements are key to the future quality of life in Camden.
At the AGM on Monday 13th February VAC will be hosting a debate on “The Future of Health and Social Care and the Role of the Voluntary and Community Sector”. This will be a broad ranging debate looking at traditional models of service delivery through to community provided, co-produced support and the role of informal community networks. The debate will also look at the role of volunteering in providing support and as a route to paid employment.
Guest speakers are Doctor Caz Sayer, the Chair of the Camden Clinical Commissioning Group, Cllr Georgia Gould, the Cabinet member for Young People, Adults and Health and Charlotte Pace, an independent facilitator working across national health programmes that support partnerships between the voluntary and statutory sectors as well as Patient and Public Voice. The debate will also look at what is happening elsewhere in London and the UK. The contribution of the speakers will be followed by a discussion chaired by Sue Wilby, the Chair of VAC. There will be an opportunity for you to contribute to the discussion and ask questions. Refreshments will follow with an opportunity to meet up with old and make new friends.
