Voscur has a VCSE Advocate on the Better Care Bristol Transformation Board (BCBTB). Our VCSE Advocate has established a mechanism for the VCSE to engage, in a meaningful way, with Better Care Bristol: The Joint Working Project. We have the full approval of the Better Care Bristol Transformation and Commissioning Boards.
The work involves co-production and collaboration in the early stages of commissioning – it has real potential to influence commissioning processes into doing things differently.
