News from NAVCA:
Last chance to join a regional Personal Health Budgets (PHB) network
Voluntary Voices (National Voices, NAVCA and Volunteering Matters) have been running a programme of support to VCS organisations through a series of 9 regional learning and support networks with the aim of: improving knowledge and understanding of PHBs; offering an opportunity to share experiences, learn from good practice and build local connections; and providing guidance on how to engage and work in partnership with CCGs. As part of this programme, they are holding a series of 3 learning and development days for each network and so far, 2 of these events have been held for each regional network.
NAVCA are running webinars for anyone who missed out on the first two days for their regional network and will be a chance to catch up before the next set of regional events, to be held in the autumn. The webinars will support voluntary sector organisations to learn more about PHBs, know what CCGs mean by a local offer, understand how organisations can work together to promote local solutions, and share experiences and build local connections.
These webinars will be held on 3 July, 2pm-3pm and 26 July, 11am-12 midday. If you would like to join these webinars, please use the links above at the time of the webinar where you will be prompted by the Zoom software to join the meeting. No pre-registration is required for these.
