What We Do

The VCSE sector in Gloucestershire and the public sector partner organisations in One Gloucestershire Integrated Care System (ICS) have agreed to work together, in equal partnership, to address health inequalities and make Gloucestershire a better and healthier place to live and work in. The basis of this agreement is set out in a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which was developed through a programme of events held with members of the VCSE sector and the ICS. The MoU was later agreed by members of the VCSE sector on 26 April 2022.

The purpose of the VCSE Strategic Partnership is to provide the overall strategic direction and governance of VCSE sector engagement with One Gloucestershire ICS. This includes:


  • Overseeing the implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding between the VCSE sector and the One Gloucestershire ICS

  • Promoting a culture of collaboration both within the VCSE sector (and between the VCSE sector and the One Gloucestershire ICS)

  • Setting strategic priorities for VCSE sector engagement with the One Gloucestershire ICS

  • Representing the VCSE sector across One Gloucestershire ICS governance and decision-making bodies at system level

  • Facilitating communication at a senior level between the public sector and the VCSE sector and ensuring a flow of information between them

  • Triaging requests for VCSE sector representation

  • Providing good governance, ensuring that representation is effective and accountable to the VCSE sector in the county
