London Met edited


The last few years have seen dramatic changes to the way health and social care services are structured and funded. The health needs of the population are changing and growing more complex but there are increasing scientific and technological opportunities to support patients and their carers.  The NHS’s  Five Year Forward View has a key focus on prevention and patient centred interventions but what are the opportunities for the VCS, policy makers and commissioners in terms of co-producing and commissioning new models of care interventions?

On the 23rd March LVSC and London for All held and all day conference to consider some of the challenges and opportunities for VCSE and Statutory bodies to work together to design and deliver services to improve the health of Londoners.

New Models of Care: Working Together for a Healthier London DRAFT INTERIM REPORT

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.

St Luke’s Community Centre

90 Central St, London EC1V 8AJ


Background to the conference:

This conference explored some of the political, economic, social and technological challenges and opportunities facing the VCSE sector in London. We looked at the long term impact of the 2015 Autumn Comprehensive Spending Review, what devolution will look like in London and how we can work with funders and the private sector to ensure the continued delivery of essential services for Londoners. During this interactive event participants had an opportunity to think about how the national and London policy and funding picture will impact on their work, cohort and organisation and in the afternoon open space sessions we explored how organisations can thrive rather than just survive.
