VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance
Funded by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), and led by the DHSC, Public Health England and NHS England – together known as the ‘system partners’, the Health and Wellbeing Alliance (HW Alliance) was established to:
- Facilitate integrated working between the voluntary and statutory sectors;
- Support a two-way flow of information between communities, the VCSE sector and policy leads;
- Amplify the voice of the VCSE sector and people with lived experience to inform national policy;
- Facilitate co-produced solutions to promote equality and reduce health inequalities.
This new programme replaces the original Innovation, Excellence and Strategic Development (IESD) programme that was renamed in 2016 following the VCSE Review.
The Health and Wellbeing Alliance is being refreshed for 2021-24, applications opened on 15 August 2020. For further information and to apply, visit the gov.uk website
