About Us

Why is the alliance important?

Our vision is that the VCSE organisations are valued and equal partners in the Integrated Care System.

We believe that partnership working will enhance the health and well-being of the population of BOB.

It will help work towards the goals of integrated care systems:

  • Improve outcomes in population health
  • Tackle inequalities in health outcomes, experience and patient access
  • Enhance productivity and value for money
  • Support broader social and economic development

We foster collaboration among VCSE organisations and between the VCSE sector and the NHS.

The BOB VCSE Health Alliance has been created to:

  • Make connections actively connect with the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector partners, and other key stakeholders to come together and plan, develop, deliver innovative solutions in order to build stronger and healthier communities.
  • Add Value across the health and care systems through community, charity and social enterprise provision.
  • Create Change building an inclusive network, that has voice and expertise to influence, inform and shape the wider Integrated Care System.
  • Challenge Inequality to ensure greater inclusivity and accessibility in the planning of health services, commissioning and service provision.

The Health Alliance is hosted by Community Impact Bucks, and they help support the project alongside infrastructure organisation counterparts in Oxfordshire and Berkshire West to deliver the BOB VCSE Health Alliance of member VCSE organisations, working collaboratively to improve health care systems for people across Bucks, Ox and Berks.

Health alliances are an effective approach to coordination and collaboration, through the involvement of government ministries of health, civil society, and UK non-government and NHS agencies in a consultative prioritisation process.
