To deliver on citizens’ high hopes during tough times, working more effectively with local voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations (VCSE) is a smart place to start. Voscur’s submission to Bristol City Council’s corporate strategy and budget consultation therefore sets out a number of ways the VCSE sector is able to play a full and meaningful role in shaping the future of our city and its citizens.

Blog: an update on Bristol's social value and the VCSE sector

Blog written by Mark Hubbard, Head of Commissioning at Voscur.

I gave evidence on behalf of Bristol VCSE sector at yesterday’s Scrutiny Task and Finish Group on Council Commissioning and Contracts (Bristol City Council scrutiny). Alongside Voscur, the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) was also asked to present the perspectives of potential bidders for public service contracts – on commissioning and social value.

My presentation included these main points:

7 November, 2017
After a consultation and commissioning process that started in 2016, Bristol City Council has announced a new programme of community-focused drug and alcohol treatment services. The new approach is designed to provide better, more coordinated services to help people get the support they need to recover – and make best use of reduced resources.

Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are currently working to commission an Integrated Urgent Care (IUC) service for the residents of Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. 
 
As a key part of this process, they are looking for 2 or 3 people to join in the procurement decision making processes. 
 

 

The King's Fund has produced a handy guide to Commissioning, aimed at those working in health and social care. The guide starts at beginner level, and moves into more complex areas of commissioning.

The resource can be accessed here.

Voscur would like to invite local VCSE colleagues to help us to shape an exciting new VCSE Strategy and new Compact for Bristol. This event  will allow local people to come together, share knowledge and experiences, participate in structured discussions and generally inform the development of this exciting new Strategy and Compact.

Owned by the sector, co-designed and facilitated by Voscur, the development of a new strategy and Compact for Bristol’s VCSE sector will help us all focus on what we want the sector to be and how we want to work together and with others.
