West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership held an event on Tuesday 21 May 2019 at Kala Sangam in Bradford to discuss the impact of the NHS Long Term Plan on our communities and, specifically, how the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) can work in partnership with other parts of the system to support some key actions within the Long Term Plan around mental health, social prescribing, admission avoidance at A&E and VCS delivery as part of the primary care network model.

We also shared the work from the Harnessing the Power of Communities workstream within the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership and how each of our 6 places (Bradford District and Craven, Calderdale, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield) have invested money in VCS-led activities. We updated on the peer support workforce development programme and the Building Health Partnerships projects taking place in Calderdale and Wakefield.
