Representing your Community – People and Places (29th & 30th May)

Funded through Connect Northamptonshire, this TWO DAY COURSE has been designed for Northamptonshire’s VCSE, to equip Senior Leaders and Managers with the skills & tools to effectively influence decision-making, service design and transformation for the Health and Wellbeing of our Communities
Our VCSE has been awarded three years of funding from the National Lottery Community Health Equalities Fund (known locally as “Connect Northamptonshire”) to embed it’s skills and expertise in the county’s Integrated Care System – the project aims to transform the culture of collaborative working practices with our System Partners in Public Health, NHS Partnerships, as well as our two unitary Local Authorities, and develop Senior Leaders for the future resilience of the VCSE Sector in an ever-changing sphere of influence and decision making.
As part of this project, this training course has been organised for VCSE professionals that have been, or would like to be, appointed to locality based representative roles within our Integrated Care System.  This includes Local Area Partnerships, Place Based Partnerships (formally Community Wellbeing Forums in North Northants) and Health and Wellbeing Forums.
