Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise organisations in Lancashire and South Cumbria have been working together over a number of years to build partnerships aiming to establish the sector as a valued partner within the health and care system.
This website is dedicated to and overseen by the partnership of voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) organisations with the support from NHS colleagues. The purpose of the site is to inform VCFSE organisations of the developments and activities the sector is undertaking together as a valued partner within the Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Partnership.
This is an invitation from Lancashire County Council’s Adult Social Care commissioners. They are hoping you'll want to find out more about new opportunities for VCFSE organisations who may be interested in providing “non-regulated” care services (i.e. not “personal” care). Much of this is to be developed as this is a new venture for LCC, so you'll also have an opportunity to help develop the concept. If you like what you hear – they’d be keen to sign you up their "pseudo-dynamic purchasing system" (PDPS).
8th February 24 is the Feast Day of St Bakhita (Patron Saint of Human Trafficking and Slavery) and to mark this special day, we have chosen to launch our new Anti-Slavery Pledge. It is predominantly aimed at the Business Community but would also be appropriate for Charities, Faith Groups, Voluntary groups etc to join.
