This event is part of Transforming Healthcare Together, a national programme of support for voluntary organisations and NHS organisations building partnerships to deliver the NHS Long Term Plan.


By the end of this workshop you will have increased knowledge and understanding of:

  • NHS structures
  • how the voluntary sector can respond to and align with statutory-sector priorities
  • the key components of good collaboration – with case studies.
  • what is working well in emerging partnerships and how challenges have been overcome.


In 2018/19 NHS England provided funding and support to nine sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) areas that wished to engage better with their voluntary sector on system transformation. NHS England commissioned NCVO as its ‘learning partner’ to gather and disseminate the learning. This one-day workshop will some of the learning from these emerging partnerships.
